The story follows two best friends Mark (played by Bragg) and Russell (played by Giambrone) on a crazy adventure through town after Ashley, the most popular girl in school, asks Mark for a ride to an exclusive pool party.

With pressure mounting, Mark and Russell track down Glenn, a DMV instructor known for his easy testing, but on the day Mark attempts the test, Glenn learns that his wife is leaving him and is too distraught to complete the driving test.
