Four weeks before the picnic day baseball game against the Lawson Lions, Ralph Jackson has deserted Brookfield School. His friends Trent, Wilmer and Harley aren't happy about it, and receive heckling from their classmates. Matters worsen when Archibald Brewster, the new kid who wears suits and arrives to school via chauffer, shows up and won't go away. Over the following weeks, the Brookfield Bumblebees learn that not everything is what it seems.
