A young woman falls in love with a man who has a dark secret, and the two begin a stormy relationship. Tessa Young (Josephine Langford) is a dedicated student, a conscientious daughter whom her mother - Carol (Selma Blair) who raised her daughter alone - can always rely on. She is a loyal girlfriend when it comes to her boyfriend Noah (Dylan Arnold).
But everything changes when she meets Hardin, a mysterious young man.
When Hardin invites her to visit his "secret place" - an extremely beautiful place, near the lake, off campus - she shows her vulnerability and an unwanted desire inside to explore herself. Tessa begins to let her guard down and opens up to Hardin, discovering that they have more in common than she could have imagined. As the romantic and physical relationship between the two flourishes, Tessa’s mind gets even more confused when she learns that Hardin is hiding a secret that threatens their relationship.
