A group of not-so-popular high school friends get the opportunity to throw a college party at one of their houses. Things go awry when one of the frat guys turns out to be a jerk, the band gets too high to play, alcohol is flowing, inhibitions are lost, and friendships are challenged. They experience mishaps and gain insight throughout the night. In the end, they’ve had quite an adventure and realize that things aren’t always as they seem and the grass isn’t always necessarily greener at a college party.
