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

American Twenty something slice of life, a bit slow
9 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nice cool bunch of young actors, colorful, playful good acting. Entertaining, sometimes a bit slow, but a slice of American twenty something life. The director could have cut a bit faster to the point. Some nice dialogs. I liked the Asian actor very much he has some real comedy talent. The director made the girls interesting and sexy without showing any flesh or being crass. A good point. I am looking forward to a bigger budget film by the same director with a producer who will oversee the editing. In the meantime this is worth watching on TV or DVD, you' ll be surprised by the overall quality of the movie and the acting. The indie world is coming up at last with good stuff, ie professional.
