Welcome to 2019 - the age of sexual liberation.
But a world of freedom brings new expectations. Kiera couldn't follow the rules, and was cast aside.
Now, with new friends to lead the way, Kiera is determined to play the game, and she's willing to sacrifice anything to avoid being outcast again.
Kiera's new friends are horrified to discover that she is not only a virgin, but has never even been kissed. Danielle; who's slept with countless men and women, resolves to show Kiera how it's done.
But when Kiera still hasn't kissed anyone hours into a night out, Danielle wonders if something more is going on. So Andy; the hot gay bestie, takes the group to the wildest queer club in town.
