This dark comedy with music concerns three misfit teenagers and their attempts to expose a drama teacher who preys on teen boys. Solomon is a reporter for the school newspaper, Howie is a gay teen who is solicited by the school's drama teacher on the internet, and Diwata is an aspiring actress/singer with no talent. They decide to perform a musical version of Arthur Miller's The Crucible, combined with time travel and a young Abraham Lincoln, in order to address the issue of gay adults at school.
