Greg (Deon Richmond) is nearing the end of high school and anxiously hopes of going to prom with Cinny (Maia Campbell), the school’s beauty. He realizes asking for help with the college applications is a great way to get close to her and they start a friendship. But Greg, an avid daydreamer, visualizing himself as a military commando when confronted by bullies or as a super genius when struggling academically, wants more so he starts to lie about things. For a while, it seems to be working. Then, everything falls apart and Greg has to figure out how to get real.
