DISMISSED

David Butler is a discouraged but optimistic high school English teacher struggling to connect with his uninterested students. So when honor student Lucas Ward (Dylan Sprouse) transfers into his class, he’s thrilled to teach such a passionate scholar. David’s excitement soon turns to fear however as he realizes that Lucas’ perfectionism is pathological and that the vengeful pupil is willing to destroy anyone standing between him and a perfect GPA.
