The film centers around Riley Jones (Shanley Caswell), a clever but cynical social outcast at Grizzly Lake High School, who harbors an unrequited love for ironically named hipster, Clapton Davis (Josh Hutcherson). Clapton is in turn, head over heels for Ione (Spencer Locke), a beautiful but self-absorbed cheerleader. All three are waiting out their final year of high school, but it's anyone's guess if they'll ever see graduation, as a serial killer known as Cinderhella is on the loose and preying on Grizzly Lake's student body. The principal (Dane Cook) is certain Cinderhella is a disgruntled student and figures he can keep the prom from turning into a bloodbath by putting the likely suspects in all-day detention on the day of the big dance.
