And you thought your unpaid internship was bad. High school prodigy Mitch Taylor (Jarrett) gets into a prestigious university and works with fellow student Chris Knight (Kilmer), to develop a laser. Unbeknownst to them, their professor is secretly working with the CIA to develop a laser weapon and is relying on his unpaid students to do the critical development work. When Chris and Mitch realize that the laser they’ve designed will be used for illegal assassinations, they hatch a scheme to undermine their professor.
