Summary
When a fiercely devoted group of military school cadets learns that their school is being sold to real estate developers, they refuse to accept defeat-- instead choosing to rise up together to protect the academy and their honor. But the brave young soldiers soon learn that the most courageous decisions can sometimes have unexpected and even fatal consequences!
