What do you do when you find out your boyfriend is cheating on you? Through monologues and scenes that range from heartbreaking to absurd, we meet a boy trying to grow up, an emotional perfectionist eager to prove she can make it in the world, a girl who gets kidnapped by her boyfriend, a guy who picks up women at Wal-Mart, a girl with an embarrassing addiction and many others, as we follow their journey through rights of passage and challenges to survive.
