When Miss J assigns an “adult life” simulation project, her class transforms into Biz Town, a modern city with a hospital, bookshop, zoo, exotic pet store—and crime. The bottom line is that the kid with the most heart points gets to pick the toppings for their pizza party, and that’s a prize worth playing dirty to win. One hard-boiled detective tries to uncover the criminals and set the town on a better path only to end up ruffling a few feathers and shaking the town to its very foundation, all in the name of a cheese slice.
