Sam leaps into the body of Knut 'Wild Thing' Wileton, a frat house president who is known for his partying. It's 1967 and protests against the Vietnam war are now common on college campuses. Sam's task is ensure that a fellow student, Elizabeth Spokane, doesn't make an error that will ruin her life. In a few days, she will place a bomb in the chemistry lab to protest work they are doing for the Defense Department. Although the lab is supposed to be empty at the time, a student will be killed. It turns out Sam also has another task, one related to Wild Thing himself. Written by

A bombing occurred in Sterling Hall on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison on August 24, 1970. It was committed by four young people as a protest against the university's research connections with the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. The bombing resulted in the death of a university physics researcher and injuries to three other people. See more
