William Hundert is an instructor at an exclusive private academy for boys where drills moral lessons learned through the study of Greek and Roman philosophers.
Hundert strives to impress upon them the importance of the ordered and examined life.
In 1976, however, Hundert finds himself with an especially challenging group of students, including rebellious Sedgewick Bell.
The son of a powerful politician, Bell pointedly runs against Hundert.
However, Hundert sees possibility in Bell, and encourages him to take part in the school's annual academic competition for the title of Mr. Julius Caesar.
Years later, Hundert is reunited with his students, where they learn the years have taught them all a great deal about their virtues and weaknesses.
