The film worked the festival circuit during 2012, including a well-received rollout at the New Jersey Film Festival and nice buzz at the Philadelphia Film Festival. Green Apple Entertainment has picked up this DreamQuest Entertainment film production and is ready to rock and roll with it.
At the center of the story is Cindy (Valerie Bauer), a high school senior who has managed to work her way into a make-up summer class for English. She just wants the hell out of high school (filmed in around Ashbury Park, New Jersey) and knows that the only way — short of a GED — is to just buckle down and get through the class.
She’s not stupid and has done fairly well in school, but some double-dealers pranked her into a failing grade. As a result, she’s cut herself off from the social scene; becoming something of a loner.

It’s simple, right? Just get it done — a half-dozen weeks of summer school. How hard can that be? No sooner does she park her lovely teenage body in her seat, when she meets Bella (Katherine Mesa — The Last Gamble, Hellfire), the school’s bad girl, who is rumored to be the daughter of some New York City crime lord. It’s oil and water … an unlikely mix.
You can see where this is going. Frank Lisi wouldn’t have much of a story if Cindy just stuck to her plan. So is it English class or hang out with the cool girl that also just wants out of the place?
First, the rumors are true, Santino (played by Frank Lisi), is a mob guy.

Secondly, with the likes of his minions — Gino (Vinny Vella — as Jimmy Petrille in The Sopranos, plus such films as Casino, The Kings of Brooklyn, etc.) and Frankie Hats (Tommy DelCorio) — and some tasty wheels for his little princess (who likes to party!!!), it’s just a matter of time before the sex, the alcohol and the drugs get our Jersey girl into some very deep water.
The mob, murder (dad does take care of business) and the police … that summer English class isn’t looking so bad about now!
