Nine-year old Sebastian lives with his wealthy parents in an affluent area of the city and attends a private school. He enjoys board games, playing piano and mucking about in his best friend's tree house. But when the government abolishes private education, Sebastian is forced to go a new and very different school where he just can't seem to fit in. His teacher and classmates have some peculiar ideas and are hell-bent on brainwashing his old values away and making him think like they do. He's determined not to give in, but it seems everyone around him has been indoctrinated — there's nowhere to turn. He can't stand by and watch as the world changes around him, but the stakes are high — can one brave boy make a difference?
