Nestled in the Pennsylvania countryside, Florence University frames an idyllic college world, complete with cute coeds and handsome jocks not to mention plenty of booze and sex with virtually no responsibility. For three seniors approaching graduation, the vagaries of life have rarely been so terrifying. Film buff Ian is at a loss as to what to do with the rest of his life or what to do about the football player he has been fantasizing about. Haile is an accomplished classical musician, a veteran violinist who is taking a break from touring to finish her education, explore her dream of becoming a singer-songwriter, and escape her controlling mother. Casey is the handsome football star whose seemingly perfect existence masks an unsatisfactory love life and an inexplicable restlessness for something more. Drawn together by their struggles for identity, the three students form a fateful friendship that will change the courses of their lives forever. Sexy, fast paced, and layered with intimate insight about life's most formative years, The Fall is a compelling coming-of-age story about what happens when we are forced to confront who we are and who we want to become.
