Rebellious drama queen Diwata, out and proud Howie, and nerdy but intense Solomon are outcasts in their Puritanical town of Salem…Oregon. Linked by a local sex scandal, the unlikely trio join forces to expose the truth. Secrets become currency, blogs are belted and “bathing suit areas” exposed in this dark comedy about what, if anything, it means to be an adult.”
