Five students spend 8 hours on a Saturday in detention at Shermer High School in Chicagoland: nerd, jock, princess, delinquent, and basket case. From separate cliques they would not interact much; in detention here they find they have much in common. In this iconic Generation-X film, director John Hughes has created something far greater than the sum of its parts.
