In a highly classified location, four brilliant, jackass grad students are interrogated by government operatives. Why? Because the world is about to end, and it’s all their fucking fault. After using reckless “cutting-edge” science for their own petty purposes, this rag tag team creates a small but potentially world-ending black hole in their college lab. The clock is ticking for this secret government agency to clean up the mess these “wannabe scientists” have made. With cooperation, the crisis could be averted before the world goes to shit. The problem? Well, these students are what you’d call bonafide assholes...and they don’t know what the hell they did to tear open the fabric of space and time. They’re clueless. The Solution? – tell these government operatives EVERY illegal thing they’ve done in the lab...

Crunch Time begins when four grad students accidentally open up a black hole that could be the end of the world. After recklessly handling cutting-edge tech in their school lab, this brilliant team of jackasses creates a small, but potentially earth shattering, black hole that grabs the attention of government operatives. Since the "wanna-be" scientists can't pinpoint exactly where their experiment went wrong, they must work with the secret government agency sent in to save the day by detailing EVERY illegal thing they've done in the lab thus far.
