SYNOPSIS: FRIENDS! ROMANS! COUNTRYMEN! Have you ever wondered what would have happened had Julius Caesar NOT been killed when he was stabbed in the Senate house in 44 BC, but instead had fled to Mexico, hiding out for millennia before returning to exact his revenge? Who hasn't! Making use of violence and deception worthy only of a tyrannical dictator, Julio Caesar gains control of an unsuspecting high school English class. About to perform their own version of the the Bard's classic tragedy, the students suddenly find themselves confronted with a substitute teacher the likes of which they've never seen before. With that, the shenanigans have begun.
