Inspired by the Stanley Milgram obedience research, this TV movie chronicles a psychology professor's study to determine why people, such as the Nazis, were willing to "just follow orders" and do horrible things to others. Professor Stephen Turner leads students to believe that they are applying increasingly painful electric shocks to other subjects when they fail to perform a task correctly, and is alarmed to see how much pain the students can be convinced to inflict "in the name of science."
A world of evil so terrifying no one dares penetrate its secret. Until now!

] made an uncredited appearance in the movie. Actually, is unconfirmed if he appears in the movie, because in the different sites that you can read it, one says that he plays a College Student and other says that he plays a Lab Technician, and all of them always refer to different men which is impossible to affirm if they're Travolta or any other.
