Summary
Sean is a student at a well-respected private college on the East Coast. Sean is attracted to Lauren, while Lauren is infatuated with Victor. Lauren's empty-headed roommate Lara is also attracted to Victor, while he has no qualms about being involved with both. Lauren used to date Paul, but Paul, a bisexual, currently lusts after Sean. Meanwhile, friendly campus drug dealer Rupert finds a ready market for cocaine among his classmates; Sean, a user, finds himself financially embarrassed and begins dealing drugs to help pay off his debts, while leading Paul on for his ready supply of marijuana
