Jack doesn't usuallly agree with anything his father has to say and so when he has the opportunity to transfer to Oakhurst his junior year, he does it (even though it was his father's idea in the first place). Jac's dad see it as a way for to get into a good college and Jack sees it as a way to get from his dad.
Oakhurst a chance for Jack to try something new Jack chooses to try out for the football team and he makes the team. Now Jack has been thrown into a world he knew nothing about about; one of intense hazing, vitamin supplements, and steroids. Jack has to make the choice of how far he's willing to go to fit in.
Ella had a plan, before she met Matt, a plan that would have her graduate from High School and move away from the same small town she has lived in all her life. But then she met Matt, the cute, shy bass player who had just moved to town. Attending a party crashed by cops or spending a complete night "saying yes" wasn't part of her plan either, but it all seemed to go perfectly until Matt leaves town without a word. Leaving Ella with a broken heart. When Matt shows up a year later with a plan to win back Ella, Ella is not sure she can give him a second chance.
