"LOGLINE: This is a heart-warming family comedy about how the special-ed kids teach their bus driver how special he is, as their impromptu field-trip becomes an FBI manhunt for the PTA's most-wanted.
SYNOPSIS: Our man thinks he's nothing special - a volunteer fireman in the small town of Sunshine, Maryland and driver of the special education school bus. When the beloved special-ed teacher dies, and he falls in love with her replacement. After the jackass of a school principal decides the "special" kids can't join the others on a school-wide camping weekend, he decides to take the kids on an impromptu field trip to Florida with their eteach. With sleeping bags in hand, they see nothing wrong with fulfilling the kids' expectations for a weekend of fun.
The special kids include:
- a smart-ass diabetic who doesn't believe he’s a "sped,"
- a girl who is wheelchair-bound from a traffic accident,
- a boy with Muscular Dystrophy,
- a boy with Down's Syndrome,
- a chronically depressed girl
- an autistic boy who wears a helmet he won't let anyone take off.
Since they believe they have valid permission slips, they give-up fighting the narrow-minded school administration, and take the kids on what becomes a hilarious weekend of well-intentioned misadventure. It’s a heartwarming, family-comedy about breaking free of socially-imposed barriers."
This just seems really, really cruel and wrong.
