The film is set in the fictional campus of Camden in New Hampshire and centers around the lives of several over privileged college students. The film's protagonist, Sean Bateman (James Van Der Beek) is a student at Camden. Sean is interested in Lauren Hynde (Shannyn Sossamon), a holier than thou coed, while Lauren is interested in Victor (Kip Pardue), the campus Lothario, narcissistic through and through. Lauren's vapid roommate, Lara (Jessica Biel), is also interested in Victor. Victor, of course, is fine with attention from both of the ladies. The film wends in and out of this bizarre love triangle, at times turning into more of a love parallelogram as more privileged and beautiful youths meander through the story. Filled with wild parties, drug use, and romantic trysts, the the only thing that the students of this prestigious private school don't do is study.
