Paige Wheeler and Storm Lancaster, intelligent expellees, serendipitously meet at a garage sale and end up approaching sex in an awkward textbook fashion. They view the relationship through the lens of economics as if sex were a commodity. As they grow closer, Paige’s promiscuous past comes to light and haunts her, which leads to complications in the relationship. Storm’s ineptness in handling the pressures of a relationship from previously attending an all-boys school also causes problems while Paige finds some amusement in his immaturity. Her sterilized view of sex creates consternation for Storm. At their new school, they make a mutual friend in Jamal. The three engage in pranks as their friendship develops. Storm’s proclivity as an adolescent male leads to poor decisions with Paige as Jamal, often the voice of reason, is ignored to the detriment of the couple. Emotions spin out of control after a frolicking camping trip with Paige’s old high-school buddies and the sexual economics experiment explodes.
