In a desperate attempt to find a husband, Marina meets Dave, via a website for mail order brides and agrees to marry him in exchange to move to America along with her 16 year old daughter, Lyuba. Lyuba's idea of the American teenage lifestyle she's watched on television is quickly challenged when the harsh reality reveals that the glamorous life comes at a cost. She'll meet Alex, the confident and beautiful senior high school girl, who sells her body to pay for her designer wardrobe and steals her mothers prescription drugs to get high. But Alex is not alone… Yolo, a charismatic guy who always gets his way and Elliot, a drug dealer's apprentice introduces Lyuba to the fast pace life of drugs, parties and wild carefree living.
Alex persuades Lyuba that her means to get money is just a spinoff of her distorted view on casual, meaningless sex. And she uses her youth and beauty to her advantage in order to get the things her parents can't offered for her. In an attempt to overshadow her innocents, Lyuba quickly adopts Alex's lifestyle.
As Yolo begins to fall for Lyuba, she resists her feelings for him… there is no room for love in her new risqué lifestyle. Meanwhile, Elliot, neglected by his infatuated best friend, begins to breakdown due the continued harassment from the school bully, Rico. Pushed to his limits, Elliot gets a gun and plans to finally stand up to Rico in what inevitably turns into a devastating twist of fate.
