Summary
Never underestimate an overachiever. To his classmates and teachers, high-schooler Ben Manibag appears to be the "model" student, a perfectionist and overachiever, destined for nothing less than graduating at the top of his class and then attending a prestigious college. But underneath this persona is a darker side, Ben and his bored high-school buddies lead double lives, flying high in a world of petty crime and material excess to ease the pressures of "being perfect."
