When his students are given a shot at competing against a prestigious, better-funded school atthe national level in an academic decathlon the odds of their emerging victorious appear scant, at best. That is, until the answers are provided to the team and against his better judgment, Daniels urges the kids to cheat in order to raise the underprivileged school's status. Eventually, suspicion and feelings of betrayal lead expose the lie, leading to a scandal and disgrace that rocks the school and the lives of the students Daniels had hoped to enrich. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
