Professor William Hundert teaches the Classics at the distinguished St. Benedict's School for Boys. He primes his charges for the annual "Mr. Julius Caesar" contest in which boys compete against each other to answer questions about ancient Roman history. Sedgewick Bell, a brash, cocky new boy who clashes with Hundert, enters the contest and does quite well, but Hundert suspects he is cheating, which he later confirms. Twenty-five years later, Bell hosts a reunion that he invites Hundert to attend. As part of the festivities, they hold another "Mr. Julius Caesar" contest. Hundert reprises his role as the moderator and the boys again don the togas for the contest. Proving that history doesn't cure all ills, Bell again cheats in the contest, but this time has to deal with his son who realizes his dad's erroneous ways.
