Accused of an assault he doesn't remember, 17-year-old Ricky seeks help from the victim's best friend, Olivia, despite his complicated feelings for her.


In an attempt to break free of her overprotective and controlling parents, Olivia sneaks out to attend a high school dance. There, she's surprised to find herself sharing a moment of real connection with Ricky, the school's bad boy, who is notorious for getting into trouble. So when he finds himself accused of sexually assaulting Olivia's best friend after the dance, it's hardly a surprise to most. What's worse, Ricky can't remember anything from the night and has to rely on a shocked and confused Olivia to clear his name, complicating their growing feelings even more.
When Olivia's family life starts to fall apart shortly after, and with Ricky's inability to open up to her, they begin developing a codependent and self-destructive force that will lead them toward Rock Bottom.
