In this wonderfully incorrect indie comedy, a "pathologically immature" former child star (Writer/Director Pat Mills) masquerades as a high school guidance counselor, providing the worst, or possibly the best, advice to troubled teens.
David Gold—former “Wacky Street” child star and self-destructive disaster—has never been able to get over high school. Recently diagnosed with skin cancer, unemployed and with nothing left to lose, he fakes his resume and gets a job as a high school guidance counselor. Quickly winning over the students at Grusin High with his laidback attitude and similar interests, he befriends Jabrielle, a teenaged outcast and soon learns that sometimes you can go too far, especially when it comes to committing a ridiculous crime.
