From being a perfect A student and discovering himself of taking a chance request to a drug seller birthday party together with his two buddies. From there, he has been taken on a wild adventure plagued with bad options after another bad choice, all the while organizing interviews and college applications that will definitely settle on with his future.

The movie is not probably the kind of film you may expect when you hear the title because the word itself gives negative implications of drugs when heard about it, and though it certainly arrange with things of this kind, it is not that easy. The small meanings of it are spoken at the start of the movie, and the definition of it, seems to sum up the film in the best light.
