While most people never have the opportunity to use what they learned in High School, Marty leverages the teachings from his classes in real-time to outwit and defeat several abusive bullies. His victory celebration is short lived as he is brought before the ruthless Principal of the school and subjected to a ground breaking behavior modification treatment. Military high technology has invaded the high school, and Marty is the unsuspecting and unlucky first test subject of a strange new supercomputer-driven brain stimulation system.
