A group of ready for action & battle-hungry military schools cadets find out that the school responsible for their hard-noses is being shut down. Permanently. Nothing almost nothin' but the military life, they decide to take matters in their own fully-holstered hands. And to think, most kids usually can't wait to get outta school. "
