After competing in a school competition to see who could create the best ‘fake movie trailer’ the school loved it so much that a group of seniors decided to take their idea and turn it into an actual movie! After raising the funds to purchase a new camera, the group of seniors set to work in March, making their movie, and finishing it the summer before their first year of college.
When Brad Martel and Owen Swift survive a brainwash attack from their new school principal, Mr. Smith, It’s up to them to stop him. Before they know it, Mr. Smith is going after their parents and they’re completely on their own. Brad and Owen must figure out how to save their girlfriends, who have been brainwashed, and also figure out how to stop Mr. Smith before he tries to take over the world with his new brainwashing technique. Throughout the movie, Mr. Smith makes his way closer to his goal, but will he succeed? Only Brad and Owen can stop him, and with the help of some friends, they just might.
