A lush city with a lake that is as clear as glass. On the lakeside, there are boats docked and several beautiful trees. Standing by the side of the road, a girl slowly makes her way toward someone. She constantly checks her phone and seems upset. She's squirming and anxious as though something has been messing with her. She gives her friend a firm hug when she runs into her on the street. She is relieved to have seen a familiar face.

The young lady whose name is Chariz strolls into a party with a companion. Her friend, who is also in high school, is ecstatic to attend their first suburban house party. She tries her best to convince Chariz to enjoy the party, which is full of people drinking and filled with music. It appears to be a high school dream and they vow to have a good time at the party.

They choose to go karaoke when out of nowhere Chariz sees an attractive man. He informs Chariz that he could assist her in selecting a karaoke song. The guy laughs at her dad jokes because he doesn't understand her sense of humor. He flirts with her despite her mockery of his attire. At the open door abruptly his companion shows up and vouches for him however hauls him away.

They start singing karaoke and do a great job, which gets everyone in the crowd cheering. Chariz's friend tells her the guy's name is Sean, and she thinks they might have chemistry. Chariz is extremely interested via Sean's cordial carefree and bright character. Who gets the entire group rolling.

One more piece of her tells that she doesn't need to give up. That she can traverse it and Sean might have been the best thing that has at any point happened to her. She's confused even more, her struggle under the surface gets more grounded as a piece of her believes she's excessively youthful for genuine romance.
