Set on a university campus, the story line unfolds over a several month period in which the “Greeks” (fraternities and sororities) prepare for the culminating event: the step show competition. Against this backdrop there are numerous subplots involving the meeting and maturation of a love relationship, a kidnapping, an avenging abused co-ed, fraternity initiation rites, step scenes, and the antics of students and faculty alike.
A naturally talented basketball player, Noah Cruise is determined to become a doctor using his basketball scholarship to UCLA pre-med, rather than succumb to the lure of former sports agent Vaughn and go for the NBA. His best friend, the buddy that took the fall for him and did the time for an assault charge, Tech, also an outstanding basketball player, has less lofty ambitions: he wants to get his GED and win an underground street ball game against his arrogant rival, Jewelz. Their lives change drastically when they both fall in love with two local girls, Vanessa Lilly and Eboni Jackson, and take fateful trip out to L.A. together.
