The same story, three young men, three vastly different perspectives:

Tommy: Tommy (James M. Hausler) is a bit of a problem child who mostly keeps to himself, doesn't really enjoy the company of others, thus gets picked on a lot, and for some reason he especially doesn't like his brother Richard (Michael Mandell), even if Richard really cares for him - in a way high school students care for one another I suppose, as he lets him join in on their 'shrooms, then takes Tommy to a party where he knows hot and promiscuous cheerleader Sasha (Eco Lopez) wants Tommy for her collection of men. And really, at the party, Sasha pretty much drags Tommy into her bed and forces herself onto him - but Tommy's so tripped out he hits her over the head with the first thing he can find to ward her off ...

Colby: Colby (Christopher M. Clark) likes to pose as "gangster", even if he's from a rich family, and even if he thinks he's the epitomy of cool, everyone at school thinks he's a jerk, everyone but Richard, but even he's at times disgusted by the way Colby behaves ... but he likes to hear when Colby tells him he's scored a pack of 'shrooms. But then Richard insists that his stupid brother Tommy joins them on their trip, and later at the party they're at, Colby tries to pick up Sasha, but apparently she has only eyes for Tommy - really, the day couldn't get any worse.

Richard: Richard's pretty much the total package, he's good-looking, polite, good at school, he's popular with all the girl, and he even bangs one of his teachers (Vanessa Vaughn). He also does drugs like none other of his friends, and always knows where to get some and how to keep himself in check ... until he gets his hands on Colby's 'shrooms and trips out pretty badly. And when he later finds his brother Tommy over knocked out, presumably dead Sasha, he naturally panics - but things go downhill from there ...

 

A rather unique little movie that's part high school drama, part stoner flick, part thriller with a bit of comedy sprinkled on and slices of coming-of-age on the side, and despite the unusual (if by no means novel) way of telling the same story from three perspectives, it feels surprisingly solid as one whole, thanks to a really well-structured screenplay, a well-told basic story, relateable characters and sharp dialogue, brought to life by a directorial effort that knows when to lead and when to give the performances room to breathe, and a very solid ensemble cast. Apparently a film that went into oblivion for years after its completion - but undeservedly so ...
