Josh and Andy sign up to become Anti-bullying Counsellors because they see it as a chance to skive. But, when they discover that younger pupils are being terrorised by a gang, they are determined to help the victims.
They form 'The Protectors', a band of non-violent vigilantes determined to bring justice to the school. Josh and Andy break up the bullying gang but this gives them a taste of power. Slowly, insidiously, the protectors themselves become the abusers.
