When a high school student goes on a killing spree in his suburban school, a true friendship is tested. Diana (Evan Rachel Wood) is a rebellious teen who faces adult life sooner than most of her peers. Her best friend Maureen (Eva Amurri) is the opposite.

Fifteen years have passed since the horrible event, and a more mature Diana (Uma Thurman) has done away with her rebellious ways. She’s now married with a daughter, but life isn’t so keen for Maureen.

The film, based on Laura Kasischke’s novel, manages to blur the line between what’s real and what’s not through a series of unconventional events.
