This film, or maybe it isn't..... is wired. A class from a school in Liverpool set off for a school trip to a castle in Wales. 4 teachers and a class seems normal and this film is basically about an every day school trip kids getting told off on the bus all seems normal. But when they arrive in Wales (after stopping off at a service station) it all turns wired, the kids....'revolt' and the teachers take sides with them. The only 'sane' one left is Mr. Briggs (Alun Armstrong: Get Carter and A Bridge too far) who decided to go. The class and the teachers go to the castle as planned, but Mrs. Kay. decides to alter the plan, and instead of going back to school, she pity's them and lets them have a day out. Mr. Briggs is furious as he learns that that the children and the teachers join forces to have 'Our Day Out'
