Description: Two stories set in two eras against the comical terrain of college and high school, past and present--exploring issues of sex, race, celebrity and exploitation. The first story: On a college campus in the mid-80s, a white female writing student has an emotional experience with her black, male writing teacher. The second story: In 2000, Toby Oxman is a 30-year-old wannabe celebrity and a documentary filmmaker. He sets out to document the Livingstons, an affluent suburban family raising three boys. The eldest is Scooby, a goofy, uninspired high school senior who aspires to be the next Conan O'Brien but whose parents are desperate for him to attend college in the fall. Brady, his 16-year-old brother, is the school's handsome and popular football star. When Brady is injured by another student during a football game, friends and family are forced to take stock of their values and re-evaluate their lives.
