"Hello, my name is Jill and I'm calling today from Tate University to ask for your help in supporting students like me."
Tensions flare between the student workers over the course of one night at Tate University's annual Phonathon, where jealousies, crushes, and financial worries all collide into a hurricane of undergraduate angst. Into this maelstrom of a “hot-mess” comes Jill, a transfer student trying to find her place in school and life. As Jill's first phone call approaches, will she be able to put on her mandatory “Tate smile?” This dark satire on the state of higher education asks us: when do we compromise our morals – and does the all-mighty liberal arts degree hasten our (inevitable) descent?
Four years after he was caught and publically ostracized for taking the SATs for other students at his high school, Zach tries to rekindle his sense of hope when his childhood friend, Becca, returns from college wanting to make amends.
In the desolate landscape of a North Dakota boomtown, where oil flows and space is limited, residents and roughnecks struggle to live, love and break even.
When a traffic-cop accidentally spills a cup of coffee on a grad-student’s laptop, their disparate New York lives are twisted together in this comedy of manners, magic and missed connections.
