Dylan Anderson (Alex Frost) is a normal teenager who,like many high-school seniors, feels forced to deal with the pressures involved with life after high school.

After failing to turn in a final paper for his teacher Mr. Cramer (Shelly Lipkin), Dylan, a straight 'A' student, is lectured for the first time about the decisions he makes now having a direct affect on his future, including his decision to travel to Boston with his long-time girlfriend Gina (Marne Patterson) to start their lives together. It is at this point that the wheels in Dylan's head start turning as he begins questioning everything he knew to be right in his life. At every turn there seems to be someone else trying to lead him along another path, including his principal, his boss, his girlfriend, his best friend, and his father.
Shocking, heartfelt and masterfully entertaining.
