A contemporary story of love, sex and art, set in a college town that follows the steadily intensifying relationship between Evelyn and Adam. As Evelyn strengthens her hold on Adam, his emotional and physical evolution discomforts his friends Jenny and Philip, with unexpected consequences for all. By turns, hopeful and harsh, the collegiate quartet deals with the conflicting human desires for autonomy and connection, truth and love, and the notion that seduction is an art.
