A nerdy high school kid, Jerry Mitchell (Casey Siemaszko), inadvertently offends a new student, Buddy Revell (Richard Tyson), who has a violent reputation. Revell informs Mitchell that he'll meet him at 3 o'clock in the school parking lot for a fight. The rest of the film is HIGH NOON
meets THE BREAKFAST CLUB. Obviously aware that he was hung out to dry with an awful script, director Phil Joanou tries to make up for this handicap with some startling camerawork. Much of it is overdone, but the result is one in which Joanou's visual style transcends the vapid script.
