In Cradle Bay, the teenage success rate soars above the norm. No drink driving accidents, no drug overdoses, no passionate suicides. The teens are busy with wholesome activities like cake sales, community service and making the grade. But new kid on the block Steve hooks up with town outcast Gavin and Rachel, who are suspicious of their peers' disturbing behaviour. The school psychiatrist has convinced the parents of Cradle Bay that a 'Stepford-like' surgical procedure is the answer to their teenagers' nasty habits. And Steve's parents are just a meeting away from agreement.
