FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P736633~Tim Tharp~timtharp]]'s unsentimental tale of adolescent frustration comes to the screen in this comedy-drama following the story of a sociable high-school senior whose self-delusion shattered by his emerging friendship with an unpopular classmate. Sutter Keely is one of the most popular kids in his class. Outgoing and fun-loving, he's completely oblivious as to what awaits him beyond high school. Lately, however, his drinking has started to become a problem. So when Sutter's girlfriend breaks things off, he reaches for the bottle without hesitation. Awakening in the grass under the gaze of studious, practical-minded sci-fi nerd Aimee Finicky, he isn't quite sure how he got into such a predicament. Over time, however, the two teens who couldn't be any more different on the surface realize they have more in common than either ever suspected. [[Performer~P664037~Miles Teller~milesteller]], [[Performer~P423512~Shailene Woodley~shailenewoodley]], and [[Performer~P297000~Mary Elizabeth Winstead~maryelizabethwinstead]] star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
