Determined to succeed at lifewhich means getting into the right high school to get into the right college to get the right jobCraig studies night and day to ace the entrance exam and does. That's when things start to get crazy. At his new school Craig realizes that he isn't brilliant compared to the other kids; he's just average and maybe not even that. He soon sees his once-perfect future crumbling away. The stress becomes unbearable and Craig stops eating and sleepinguntil one night he nearly kills himself. Craig's suicidal episode gets him checked into a mental hospital where his new neighbors include a transsexual sex addict a girl who has scarred her own face with scissors and the self-elected President Armelio. There isolated from the crushing pressures of school and friends Craig is finally able to confront the sources of his anxiety.
