While sitting in a park, a small group of boys, all teenagers and all members of the same gang, witness an accident involving what appears to be an old man. He is not really an old man, however, but an alien from outer space. Like a number of other witnesses, the boys run to where the accident occurred; however, to their and everyone else's amazement the old man is nowhere to be found. It's as though he disappeared. After leaving, the boys walk over to their clubhouse. In the middle of their meeting they hear a loud crash coming from the bedroom. While searching the room, they discover the alien taking shelter. Realizing that he is on the edge of death, the boys discuss the matter and agree to call the police. However, after overhearing their discussion, the alien pleads with them not to do that. After inquiring as to how they can help, the alien instructs the boys on just what to do. Although astonished at his bazaar instructions on how to help heal him, the boys agree and do as he asked; after the 24th hour of administering aid and to the boys' astonishment, the alien is restored to health.In return for their help, he agrees to be a sort of teacher and mentor to the teenagers for a period of one year.The alien is called the Pedagogy. With the Pedagogy by their side, these boys will face a series of challenges that will test to and call forth their strength of character and quality of mind.
