Jared has been kicked out of another school in a seemingly countless row and his new one doesn't seem any better than all the others he's been to. But probably due to an unexpectedly good mood in the first few days and weeks, he makes friends, falls in love with the girl that looks too perfect to be made up, and he feels like this may be the first time he really cares about anything. But soon they all start getting in trouble when he pulls them down into his dark-ish world of reckless pleasure seeking, borderline criminality and self-destructive behaviour.
He's going places he's never thought of before and slipping further into a lifestyle that will kill him, threatening to be expelled again but this time is the first time he has motivation not to. So he's facing a decision that's the hardest he's ever had to make.
