We follow Jonah, a 21-year-old college senior, as he enters a college house party. He meets his friends and little sister, Melanie, inside. Melanie introduces Jonah to the glowing, virginal, 18-year-old Violet. Jonah tries to introduce himself. She disappears. Now, Jonah must find Violet so that he can express his attraction and gauge hers.
Jonah plunges into the party, which grows wilder. Jonah sees Violet’s face in girls who look nothing like her. He finds her a few times, only to be distracted by his sister, or increasingly odd events at the party. His desperation for her grows, until finally, he finds her alone in a bedroom upstairs.
