A horror story that tells about the kidnapping of some American teenagers in a expensive private high school.

They're 17 years old and live in Cles, a peaceful little town in California. They all go to (attend) the same private, expensive high school. These things may seem like the only elements that these like many other teenagers have in common. But there is more. These(few) teens are the most deviant, rebellious, and undisciplined of the entire school.

They are all at risk of being expelled and forced to complete their education in an alternative setting at night due to their unwillingness to conform.

But at night within the walls of Kennedy High School something happens and the place that the kids have always looked at as familiar and safe becomes a nightmare.

Trapped and tortured the teens find a way out, but...

This work is an unrestrained tale that produces a teeter-totter of dramatic scenes that leaves one with bated breath. And a surprise ending that completely reverses the situation. It is a text that illustrates what the new generation is like and that allegorically reveals how society tends to marginalize teens by filling them with excessive wealth. In turn removing from them the bare essentials (basics) and also the ability to tell good from evil.

In the end they become the adults they have learned to despise. Inward and outward
