A semi-autobiographical look at a day in the life of several teenagers and their experiences with friendship, jealousy, love, and life itself while working summer jobs at the local mall in the mid-2000s.
Newbie Sam initially clashes with fellow coworker Amy and is overwhelmed at his job in the food court, but finds council in veteran employee Alex. Game store employees and social outcasts Cole and Jonathan both fawn over Brooke, the manager at the alternative clothing store, and face torment by Brooke's employees Hayden and Wesley. Sporting store employees Justin and Ben and apparel store employees Jessica and Taylor learn more about themselves after they fail to connect with one another. Dylan, Josh, and Charles, who work at the California lifestyle store, evade mall security as they attempt to make it through the day with a little help from their favorite drug supplied by the children's area mascot, David.
Comparison pitch: The ultimate combination of Superbad, Adventureland, The Way Way Back, Dazed and Confused, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Rated R for strong language and pervasive teen drug use.
