Jono (Dylan Llewellyn) is inspired to take on the new path when the army holds a free assault course day at the college, leading to competition between him and his friends.
With Jono, Bart McQueen (Jonny Clarke) and Neil Cooper (Tosin Cole) all keen to impress on the course, they soon start employing dirty tactics to pull ahead.
Later, Jono becomes frustrated when Bart's put-downs take their toll, but the mischievous McQueen continues to humiliate him by giving him a soaking…
Undeterred by Bart's behaviour, Jono starts to seriously consider whether joining the army could be the right move for him.
When Jono later spots Bart meeting with a drug dealer to feed his growing cannabis habit, he vows not to be a waster like his friend and goes ahead with enrolling in the army. Does he have what it takes to make it into the forces?
