Tucker Mitchell is a college student with big dreams in the world of big finance. And he’s gaining free-market street cred by selling the hottest brand of ecstasy in Chi-Town.

A cross between Narcos and Revenge of the Nerds, this quirky Chicagoland story of fish-out-of-water explores what happens when people are taken out of their element and put to the test.

When he’s forced to choose between the two most important women in his life, Joey finds the answer in a take-out bag from a taco truck.
