Plot synopsis
The Prank Pavel Lungin's producing studio offers a remake of Vladimir Menshov’s youth film shot in 1976. Once again the film takes place at an ordinary Moscow school with morals and manners. A new pupil from the provinces comes to a graduation class and breaks all dispositions and challenges the recognized leader, arrogant guy from a rich family. To restore the leading position he resorts to desperate measures and subjects the young and inexperienced English teacher to a cruel hoax. Scandal flares up and the head of studies wishes to expel the insolent fellow from the school. Popular musician Noize MC plays the leading role.
