Andrea, your average college co-ed, has signed up for some extra courses at the local university, but so far the only thing that has sparked her interest is the sexy guy on campus with the tight-fitting jeans, muscle-hugging T-shirt and ever-present shabby cowboy boots. From their fiery exchange of awareness, the admiration is not completely one-sided.
After a miserable day at her part-time job and a few drinks, Andi takes a walk, only to find herself in the arms of her campus crush, Street. As the two get to know each other rather robustly against a storefront window, Street's girlfriend appears and issues a deliciously steamy proposition.
Andrea soon realises she's about to get a crash course in down-and-dirty street smarts that she won't soon forget, under the smouldering tutelage of Street and his exotic-looking girlfriend, Toni. Apparently, you can score anything on the street these days—even a threesome!

But in the stark light of day, Andi has to admit that her feelings for Street are more than simple infatuation, and Toni isn't a part of the new equation.
Could Andrea possibly hope Street might feel the same?
