Tim Doolan (Adam Horovitz) is a troubled Los Angeles teen with a history of mischievous, sometimes criminal behavior. His self-centered parents are too preoccupied with their own personal problems to help. After he clashes with the police, Tim's parents send him to a juvenile detention facility, where he is treated like a dangerous prisoner. There he meets Dr. Charles Loftis (Donald Sutherland), a dedicated psychologist who fights back against the rigid institution and tries to help Tim.
