Mouse Bradford has just arrived at Perkins Girl’s College. She has left behind the small town where she grew up, her father and her stepmother. Mouse is quickly adopted by her two senior roommates, the striking, sharp-witted Paulie and the charming and beautiful Tory. The three become inseparable as they bond over loss: Mouse has lost her mother, Paulie has lost the parents who gave her up for adoption, and Tory is losing herself to fit her parents’ expectations.Although they are the closest friends she has ever had, Mouse is confused by the depth of the relationship between Paulie and Tory. The world comes crashing down when Tory and Paulie are inadvertently caught in a compromising situation. Unable to justify their relationship to her family, Tory gives in to the pressure and distances herself from Paulie and her own feelings. Mouse, torn between her friends, begins to understand what it means to be in love – and just how much of love is impossible to define. — Telefilm Canada
