Storyline

6 college students from different backgrounds, are assigned to work together on a final project. These six students have so far spent no time together, can't stand each other and must pass this final assignment in order to pass the class. The assignment is to create a utopian society, on paper. They've had all semester to work on the project but in the tradition of most college group assignments, have opted to wait until the last minute to cram the entire semester's work into one night. The film explores the six character's differences, commonalities and secrets, and the real stuff they have to go through in order to accomplish the task at hand. Over the course of the night, the students learn how their pre-conceived stereotypes are often incorrect. As we discover the differences that Nera, Justin, Caleb, Aaliyah, Ken and Tanci have, we also find out what makes them part of the same human family. In trying to create their own Utopian Society, our characters discover just how hard it ... Written by John P. Aguirre

Watchable little flick
13 May 2004 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

A friend of mine got a copy of this from the director, since she's up for being in his next film. I was surprised I liked it as much as I did. I usually hate indie things. But although it got very after-school special toward the end, it was a very realistic account of college students and their personalities. The best part of the film was the chemistry between the actors. The actors appeared to work very well with each other and keeps you interested. Their dialogue is very natural and felt like college kids talking as opposed to so many TV shows who write teens who talk like adults. Getting sick of that. I have to recommend the flick. If it comes out on DVD, it's worth a rent.
