"If you drink some wine and there's no one around to see it, does it still count against you?"  Katie is hoping it doesn't count.  She is a high school senior with a scholarship to college.  Away from this tiny town.  Away from her dysfunctional family.  Away from her problems.  But the drinking is causing more problems.  She meets Alec.  He is the sweetest guy you would ever want to meet.  Until he gets drunk.  When he gets drunk at a party and pursues Katie, she just wants to get away from him.  That's the only reason she would get behind the wheel of a car when she had been drinking.  But this is a night that will change things for both teens.
