In the Autumn of 1955, working-class Jewish teenager David Greene, from Scranton, Pennsylvania, receives a football scholarship to an exclusive Massachusetts prep school for his senior year due to his grades and ability to play football. Upon arrival, he meets his teammates Rip Van Kelt, Charlie Dillon, Jack Connors, and his roommate Chris Reece, the most well known and popular students who are from well-to-do families, and learns of the school’s cherished honor code system. Soon learning that his new friends are antisemites, he suppresses his background.

David becomes the team hero and attracts beautiful débutante Sally Wheeler, whom Dillon claims is his girlfriend. After a victory over the school’s chief rival St. Luke’s, Dillon inadvertently discovers David’s Judaism. Out of jealousy, Dillon sensationalizes this, causing Sally and his teammates to turn against David. Soon after, he finds a sign above his bed bearing a swastika and the words “Go home Jew”. David’s classmates, led by Richard “McGoo” Collins and his bodyguard-like roommate Chesty Smith, constantly harass him, with only Reece and another unnamed student remaining loyal.
