It is early summer in the beachside town of The Valley. Lexi Slaydon flips her long auburn hair in an attempted display of confidence before she steps into her local church for the weekly Friday night social.
No matter how many times she attended youth nights, the butterflies always took flight within her stomach in the hours leading up to youth night.
So, when a normal day at work sees a handsome stranger move into Lexi’s path and an opportunity at church presents itself that could set her up to finally conquer her fears, Lexi feels a spark; a spark of that thing she sees so often in her best friend, Hope: confidence!
Just as Lexi begins to get a grasp of how her new reality feels, another new reality hits. She discovers too late that she is a naive pawn in a game of conquests her new beau is playing. Rocked to the core, Lexi tries to break it off, only to find his determination intensify. A night that should have been a night to remember for one of her best friends quickly becomes a night to remember for Lexi as she and her beau face off with potentially devastating results.
Will she have the courage and be strong, or will she break under the pressure?
