Gurion has been expelled from three Jewish day-schools for acts of violence and messianic tendencies.
He ends up in the Cage, a special lockdown program for the most hopeless cases at his new junior high school.
But in just four days, from the moment he meets the beautiful Eliza June Watermark to the terrifying Events of November 17, Gurion's search for righteousness sparks a violent, unstoppable rebellion.
Driven equally by moral fervour and teenage exuberance, The Instructions is hilarious, troubling, empathetic, monumental, breakneck, romantic and unforgettable.
