Orlando is balancing his desire to make Varsity Football and his need to protect his little sister, Virginia, starting her Freshmen year. Virginia’s best friend Douglas, also a Freshmen, struggles with his plan to come out of the closet and gets no support from his alcoholic mom. Meanwhile, Orlando’s girlfriend Sandy, also a senior, just wants her mom to trust her enough to drive the car. But it’s dangerous out there; something today’s high schoolers know all too well.
