Mason has been picked on at school for as long as he can remember and he’s tired of it.

He is happy that his family is moving and that he will never have to go to this school ever again. On his last day, Mason, a budding filmmaker, decides to get the ultimate revenge on the two worst bullies. He films them and then edits the footage to humiliate them. But then the plan takes on a life of its own. The video goes viral and the two bullies become the butt of everyone's jokes. Furious, they are determined to get even and Mason must run like his life depends on it. And it just might.
