We follow Jake and his two best friends through a world distorted by sex and porn. They all have their own demons, but Jake's secret is one that he can’t tell anyone. The leader of the group is Kyle, constantly talking about girls, yet never actually with them. Jarred cannot stop cheating on his girlfriend. Jake seems to be the only kind boy in the group. He doesn’t talk about girls the same way as his friends and seems sensitive. He has a different problem: every night, he flees from his apartment to look straight into the bedroom of Christina, a sevenyearold girl who has just moved in with her older sister Zara.
