Luke McNamara (Joshua Jackson), a Yale senior, wants to go onto attend the University's law school, but, as a "townie" on a scholarship, he doesn't have the money for tuition.
When the Skulls, the most secretive and powerful of the Yale secret societies, offers him membership, one of the many perks of which is paid tuition at any law school of his choice, he jumps at the chance.
As he is drawn into the world of the Skulls, Luke is "life-partnered" with Caleb Mandrake (Paul Walker), son of Judge Litten Mandrake (Craig T. Nelson), a powerful jurist in line for the Supreme Court.
When Luke's roommate (Hill Harper), who was doing an expose of the Skulls for the campus newspaper, turns up dead of an apparent suicide, Luke decides to dig deeper.
Discovering evidence of the Skulls' involvement in his friend's death, Luke finds himself manipulated by Judge Mandrake's life-partner, Senator Ames Levritt (William L. Petersen), and facing down the full force of the society's deadly power.
