"Trust. Seduction. Betrayal."

Over the years Shakespeare's works have been getting a modern retelling for today's audiences to enjoy. O is based on Shakespear's "Othello". Set at almost all white boarding school, the only black student, Odin, is the star of the basketball team. The coaches son and fellow basketball player, Hugo, is enraged that his father has named Odin the best player on the team and vows to pull Odin from his pedestal.

Odin is dating Desi, the most popular girl at school. Hugo plots a scheme to undermine their relationship, hoping it will pull Odin away from the success that Hugo thinks he deserves instead. Odin's good friend and also fellow basket ball player, Michael Cassio, get himself suspended from the team after a drunk fight, so Hugo convinces him that he should get closer to Desi in an effort to get her to talk to Odin for him, to help restore him to the team. Hugo then tells Odin that Michael and Desi have been spending a lot of time together, and starts planting the seeds of doubt, eventually convincing Odin that Desi is cheating on him with Michael.

When Odin starts to believe that Desi is cheating, him and Hugo start hatching a plan to kill both her and Michael. Hugo and his best friend try to kill Michael in a carjacking, but after things go wrong and Michael is only unconscious, Hugo convinces Rodger to kill himself. Odin in the meantime is sweet-talking Desi but then suddenly starts choking her, killing her after a small struggle. After she's dead, Desi's best friend, Emily, comes in and discovers her body. She soon puts together that it was Hugo that hatched this plot and tells Odin. Hugo tries to tell her stop but since she won't he kills her too. Odin tries desperately to ask Hugo why he would do all this, but won't answer. When the authorities arrive he tells them everything then kills himself as well.
