Five very different high school students find themselves serving detention together one Saturday. Each of them belongs to a different stereotypical high school category and is used to being treated accordingly, but in this contained environment with little to do but talk to each other, the students discover their common humanity and come to realize that they can transcend this kind of pigeon-holing. The five of them find a way to turn a punishment into one of the most rewarding and transforming days of their lives, as well as an opportunity to cause aggravation to a despised authority figure. By the time they leave the school, they're still a nerd, a girly girl, a jock, a rebel and a nutcase, but they're also much more.
