The story starts with the teacher (Mr. Kennedy) preparing the students for an exam. We see the characters who are being introduced and we see some students about to fall asleep. But others are trying to learn and listen. It is the final test of the year and the most important.
Part 2 - Climax
1 week later, it is the day of the test. John and his friends are studying before the test but other students don’t care as much. Once the digital portion of the test is about to start, Maddox tries to interrupt the class.. He says that school isn’t important and it won’t help him.
Maddox continues to mess around while the other students do work. He starts to get in an argument with the teacher and he ends up not finishing his test.
Then it’s time to get into a college, but no top college is willing to accept Maddox.
Now he can hardly concentrate for a job and gets fired from everything he applies for.. Maddox isn’t able to understand some basic things that school tried to teach. Tim is the production manager of a factory and John is a surgeon for an emergency hospital.
John and Tim are stopping by at a fast food restaurant where Maddox happens to be working minimum wage. They talk for a while and we learn that John has a good job and goes to a good college, all because he followed what school was teaching him.
