Bullied outsider Ned and new boy and star athlete Conor are forced to room together at their boarding school. Conor is drafted into the senior rugby team, whose actions dominate school life and whose privilege and entitlement have made Ned's life at the school a misery. Ned and Conor take an instant and visceral dislike to each other and seem destined to remain enemies until their English teacher Mr. Sherry begins to drill into them the value of finding one's own voice. This lesson isn't appreciated by everyone though, not least the rugby coach who has his own agenda and harbors some deep suspicions about Sherry.
