Kelvin Anis is an average teen whose life is turned upside down when he's forced to move from Los Angeles to a small mid-western town. On his first day of school, he befriends Fritz, an unpopular, wise-cracking misfit, who introduces Kelvin to the school's chess team. Only, the chess team is just a front for Fritz's unsanctioned Rock Paper Scissors league and Kelvin quickly gets thrown into the ridiculous culture of this so called "sport". Along with the gangly "movie producer", ReRun, the child genius, Cheddar and the uniquely gifted, Einstein, Kelvin joins Fritz's squad to form the team of five they need to qualify for the World Championships. And if joining an RPS playing team of misfits wasn't enough to make Kelvin a target of the school bully, Jordan, his budding romance with popular girl, Valerie, puts him squarely in Jordan's sites.
