The evil President Isimo decides to capture and deport all the ugly children. After a photo-shoot Paul and a few ugly classmates are sent on a 'school trip'. On the bus, Paul soon realises that this is not just a pleasant excursion but that the children are being shipped off to a secret place. He comes up with a plan and manages to escape, but a bounty hunter is sent to hunt him down. Can Paul shake off his pursuer and more importantly, can he both free the other children and defeat the president?
