The film is considered by some to be a recollection of the 1992 movie Poison Ivy - one in which Gold and King have the Drew Barrymore and Tom Skerritt roles (respectively), while Smith is in Sara Gilbert's.


Darcy Palmer (Gold) is a promising young artist. On the night before her wedding, she empties her fiancé's bank account and runs to New York. On the way, she meets Brianne Dwyer (Mireille Enos), a young woman who is on her way to her first year in college. Darcy murders Brianne and assumes her identity, enrolling in college in Brianne's place. Mary Lambert directs.
