During fourth period, the students are in gym class. A girl returns to classroom to find one of her classmates dead and the other with blood on his shirt and a knife in his hand. She believes that her classmate was not the one to commit the crime and decides to help. However, they only have 40 minutes left of fourth period to solve the case before everyone returns to class and the situation is discovered.
It was a pretty good movie, with a lot of suspense that had me wondering who the real killer might be until the time of the revelation.
I liked the main characters as well; the number one student of the class and the quiet, mystery-lover girl who goes unnoticed most of the time. I found it a bit strange though for the two of them to remain as calm and collected as they did when they found their murdered classmate. Also, it was a bit strange for romance to be developped under such circumstances, but I kind of liked the interaction between them.
The supporting characters were also nice. From the teachers who knew nothing (or everything) to the friends who decided to help (or just scream at the sight).
All in all, it was an enjoyable movie with a few weak parts, which don't hinder the mystery whatsoever.
