Babar Ahmed 's

"Genius"

THE OBJECTIVE
She is beautiful. Intelligent. AND available… but she only dates smart guys. And Mike is CRAZY about her.

THE OBSTACLE
The only problem is that Mike is not smart… he's just not the academic type.

THE SOLUTION
So Mike sees no alternative left to him but to do what no student at Ruxdale High has dared do before. He is going to ask his economics teacher to MAKE him smart…. his obnoxious, despicable, and self-centered economics teacher, Miss Helen Goldwyn.

THE DEAL
Ordinarily Miss Goldwyn would not only laugh at Mike's request but she would probably throw something in his direction as well. But today she has a major problem of her own. And she is about to propose a deal to him, which he just won't be able to refuse.

THE RESULT
With completely opposite personalities this student and teacher are going to take each other beyond their physical and emotional limits. And along the way they are going to annoy the hell out of a very hungry cop. 'Genius' tells the story of a high school boy with a learning disability and how his teacher tries to make him confront this condition.
