Max Fisher is an enthusiastic pupil at the prestigious Rushmore Academy. He is editor of the yearbook, founder of the debating team, chairman of the chess club, etc. Later he wants to go to Harvard or Oxford. Unfortunately he is the school's worst pupil. His strange position within the school becomes more complex when he falls in love with a new teacher, a refined English widow. His rival for her affections is Mr Blume, the father of two of the school’s most obnoxious pupils. But Blume is also the only one to recognise Max’s special talents and encourages him in his rashest plans. The situation drives Max to despair and revenge. He loses himself in a sparring match of mutual harassment that gets completely out of hand.
