NEW SCHOOL tells the story of a group of "freshmen" of the New School, the McGaffin middle school in which there is a mysterious toilet. It is a broken toilet in which the Wall of Celebrities is kept, a tiled wall above where all the names and photos of the school's legends hang: the most popular students of all time who have done over the years so memorable actions to enter the myth! Only a very few, over the decades, have managed to join this group of selected students. To enter the WC, in fact, you need to complete legendary feats and to be voted on by your peers on the school app: only those who reach a million points can have their name written on the wall.
