Comedy, Coming of Age, Romance
When quizzed by her best friend to spill the beans about her weekend, virginal misfit Olive makes up a hot encounter with a college boy in the hope it will increase her popularity. Word soon gets around about her supposed promiscuity, but instead of denying the gossip, the student basks in her newfound 'bimbo' status. Unfortunately, lies have a tendency to come back and bite you, a bitter truth that poor Olive learns in spades.
