Seth and Evan want to lose their virginity before high school is over. One day, they go to school to find out there's a big party and that their friend Fogell has purchased a fake ID. Putting the two together, they offer to buy alcohol for the girls they like before the party. They go to the liquor store after school and Fogell gets mugged while he's buying alcohol. When the cops come, Seth and Evan think that Fogell got caught with the fake ID. They begin panicking in the parking lot and Seth gets hit by a car. The driver of the car offers Seth and Evan alcohol from a party in exchange for no charges being pressed for the accident. When they go to the party to get the alcohol, a big fight breaks out and they run away from the party with plenty of liquor. While this is all happening, Fogell befriends the cops that helped him after the mugging and goes on a joyride with them. As Seth and Evan are running away with alcohol from the party, they get pulled over by the cops that are with Fogell. They run away from the cops with Fogell and go to the party.
