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

Film Captures A Generation
12 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

This film speaks to a generation of 1990s and early 2000s kids. Everything from the music to the eclectic cast. I know that at college amongst my group of friends there were curiosities and stereotypes that had to be worked out in college and high school. This movie really portrays the first week at college getting to know a new group of people and looking at it through the minds of people from all different backgrounds who ended up in the same place. Great work. The director definitely had an eye for talent in casting Malin Akerman. The scene at the baseball field is one to be remembered. The visual aspect (as well as the dialogue) makes this movie one to remember.
