A high school nerd is assigned to write a piece for the school paper about a new boy who is rumoured to be a psychopathic nutcase.

When the impish Jerry Mitchell is assigned to interview the new transfer student with a supposedly violent past, Buddy Revell, he makes the fatal mistake of touching his subject.

Revell, who hates being touched, responds by challenging the unwilling Mitchell to a fight at three o'clock in the parking lot.

Spanning the course of the school day, the film follows the disaster-bound Mitchell as he soils his good-boy image through various misguided attempts at averting the fight.

Poor Jerry has just seven hours, a good supply of wit, a few friends, a savvy kid sister and the worst luck of any kid alive, to find a way out of this tough problem.
