Synopsis

Set at the fictitious Harrington Campus, freshman John Dietrich strongly believes that he'll make lifelong friends and connections if he joins a fraternity. So with his two friends, Steven Trayer and Allen Phillips, the trio attempt join the most popular, and exclusive, fraternity on campus, KPL. The three of them become close friends, referring to themselves as the three muskateers. John even begins to idolize the charming fraternity president, Jake Tyler, and desperately wants to emulate him. The tight-knit friendship falls apart when Steve is not accepted because he is black. Jake immediately targets Steve through a series of dangerous and racially motivated hazing incidents aimed at testing the loyalty of John and Allen. John is caught between loyalty to his best friend Steve, and to his desire to belong to a fraternity. And Allen soon becomes the pawn of Jake. Allen and a reluctant John go along with the racist hazing events, until they get out of control.
