After the high school football season ends in a loss, Joshua Rodgers, a kind and rare breed of teenage boy in the modern world, walks through the crowd and notices all his fellow players being comforted by their girlfriends. As he walks he feels alone and wants what his friends have. Josh is then invited to a party at the quarterback's house. While at the party he tries his first beer and attempts to ask a girl, Brittany, who he has liked since elementary school to dance, but fails. After another failed attempt something else goes terribly wrong. While he is fine, the next Monday at school his friends feel horrible and come up with a plan for him. They encourage him to text several girls first, in order to get over his shyness and build confidence. Once he does, he tries asking them on a date, but gets rejected by several of them. Eventually he lands a date with one of them, Kayla. However, soon he is ignored, out of the blue, by her. Once he finds out why she ignored him he goes down a path that turns him into something he's not. He gains confidence, yet in the wrong way. After being constantly rejected, can his best friend and a person he thought he was finished with turn him back into the "Old Josh" before he does something he'll regret?
