An innocent high school crush snowballs into a life-changing moment for three coming-of-age teens. 15-year-old Najaf attends an exclusive private high school where she becomes infatuated with Drew, the class stud. Torn between her traditional upbringing and family expectations and her new sexual awakening, Najaf, finds herself caught in a web of her own making that promises liberation even as it might simultaneously lead to her undoing.
