Written by August Schulenburg

CONTENT WARNING: This show contains implications of sexual assault and brief themes of suicide.

In a not so special town, at a not so special high school called Plainview High, six seemingly not so special kids work through teenage drama while expecting to come out unscathed. When Scotty the Hotty falls for Jane the Plain, Scotty quickly betrays her trust, leaving the other four shocked and Jane at her most vulnerable. At this point, Jane is mysteriously given a cursed gift and all six are plagued by its unforeseen consequences. Jane and Scotty are plagued by humility and self-reflection. Betty and Leonard are plagued by jealousy and obsession. Lexi and Leeson are plagued by expectations and self-worth. While struggling with these insecurities the six strive to find friendship, self-esteem, approval and love but are soon faced with the fact that in order to get the thing they’ve always wanted, they’ll have to do something they’ve never done.
