The film follows college freshman Cooper (Sam Tsui) as he attempts to win the heart of his teaching assistant, Bianca (Allison Williams - "Girls"). Cooper is so enamored with Bianca that he cannot pay attention in English class during a midterm and is set to lose his college scholarship if his performance does not improve. Enter Nate (Miles Jacoby) and Lubo (Brennan Caldwell), Cooper's two roommates, who decide he must seduce his TA once and for all to boost his grade and overcome his insecurities about women. But Cooper ends up falling for his classmate Jackie (Julie Shain) instead, a girl he originally sees as a stepping stone in his path to romance with Bianca. In an additional twist, Jackie and Bianca are competing against each other in a prestigious essay contest, and Bianca turns into the movie's villain when her plans for winning the contest go awry. Without spoiling the rest, there has to be mention of a student with man-child syndrome (a fictional disease in which a grown man reverts to the mind and behavior of a child) who provides humor and is a crucial part of the plot. Being a musical, the film tells the story through a mix of spoken dialogue and spirited, vibrant song.
