Lonely college freshman Alex has closed himself off from his classmates, who all appear to have this whole “college thing” figured out. Home is 1500 miles away and all he can think about is transferring to a school closer to his family. Everything changes one night when Alex takes a leap and attends a party at his campus’ notorious “Shithouse,” where he forges a strong connection with his RA, Maggie. When she ignores him the next day and seems to have forgotten about their amazing night, Alex feels desperate for things to go back to how they were before.
