A love triangle of three teenagers turns into tragedy. Eighteen-year-old Bridget Morgan, a lovely girl who was top of the cheerleaders in a popular school, is living life to its fullest. Despite all her success, she feels that something is missing in her life. Then she runs into Alvin Blake, a wealthy young football bachelor, but she is diverted by Randy Anderson, a violent young man with an ambiguous temper. Bridget is reported missing, and the only last person seen with her on the night of the prom is Alvin Blake. Two days later, her body is found buried in a shallow grave with a gay classmate. The investigative officer, Robertson, turns to her boyfriend, believing he is the culprit due to some evidence on the crime scene. Alvin Blake is arrested and sentenced for a crime he didn’t commit.
