Plot Summary:

Peter and Jan have a secret: they are the notorious "Edukators," mysterious perpetrators who break into the expensive homes of local yacht club members as an act of political rebellion. They don't steal anything; they simply re-arrange people's furniture and prized possessions and leave notes that read, "Your days of plenty are numbered." When Peter's girlfriend enters the fold, an impulsive break-in leaves them face-to-face with the generation they abhor. The trio makes a rash decision that puts their future, and their victim, in jeopardy. Ideals are tested as generations collide, passions rage and loyalties shatter.
