The last semester of high school is extremely important for Brian Haner; it's the last moment to shine and get to the university of his dreams. But his only friend, James, doesn't think the same - he stops caring about school and spends time with punks. Among them is one boy with purple hair and lip piercing. And there is this smell of cigarettes all the time.
Brian doesn't know yet what's the matter with Zack, but since their first meeting he clearly senses the tension between them. The tension he doesn't like at all.
