Tells the story of a high school history class experiment that frighteningly demonstrated the power of fascism
High school history teacher Burt Ross was known for his innovative teaching methods. When it came time to study World War II and the effect Hitler had on the youth of Germany, Ross decides to show his students what it was like to be under group pressure. He starts a movement in his class stressing discipline and solidarity, and before he knows it, 'The Wave' becomes a cult that sweeps through the entire school--and trying to control it as well. Has he created a monster? This story is based on a true incident.
