End-of-the-year celebrations are underway at a small liberal arts college in Ohio. The night’s main event? A CRUSH PARTY. The rules? Submit your crush and they get an invite. Or if you’re “crushed,” you also get an invite.
Freshman IZZY ALDEN is still a virgin and the crush party is her last chance to do something about it before summer break. She and her two best friends, ANUKA and FIONA, chase their crushes both in real life and online. But Izzy’s moral compass skews as the night progresses and it seems her quest to have sex might cost Izzy her friends.
