The lives of five High School students are changed forever while serving detention on a Saturday.
Principal Matthew's task on the Saturday after Homecoming is to oversee detention. At Evans High School, students pick up litter on the school grounds as punishment. Five students from various backgrounds serve detention together and it doesn't take long for conflicts to arise, bullying to begin and for tensions to flare. Problems outside of school with substance abuse, teenage pregnancy, and domestic abuse affect the emotions and decisions of everyone involved, culminating in a series of unexpected events that influence the future for each character.
