The headmaster of Trinity College asks Archie Costello, the leader of the Vigils,

a secret society that rules the school, to help with the selling of 20,000 boxes of chocolates in the annual fund-raising effort. Archie sees the chance of adding

to his power - he is the Assigner, handing out to the boys tasks to be performed

if they are to survive in the school. Freshman, Jerry Renault, a newcomer to the corrupt regime, refuses to sell chocolates. Enormous mental and physical pressure is put on him but he will not give in - the result is an inevitable,

explosive tragedy.
