WE ALL DREAM OF WHAT LIFE IS LIKE ON THE OTHER SIDE. In his first year of college Brian Walden, an unpopular scruffy nobody straight out of high school, is armed with two things: a scholarship to a prestigious university and the desire to make enough money to forget his near-destitute and friendless childhood. Like many people who have spent years in poverty, Brian dreams of a life of luxury. In his first year of college, Brian's dreams end as reality hits-thanks to his semi-celebrity-multi-millionaire roommate, Charles.

Despite their enormous differences, Brian and Charles become fast friends. Brian is captivated by Charles purely hedonistic lifestyle of staying up all night, crashing parties, fancy restaurants, beautiful women, smoking, drinking, and swiping credit cards with no limits, as Charles is taken by Brian's naivete and obsession with success. The more time Brian spends with Charles, the more he realizes that Charles is hiding something from him. When Brian uncovers a terrible secret about Charles' past, Charles is prepared to pay any price for Brian's silence. The question is, would you abandon your morals and sacrifice your only friendship to have the things you want the most?
