Sadly, not much has been revealed about the plot of the limited series, but we do have a brief synopsis as released by Production Weekly:
Erika Vu (Condor) is completely bummed out. She in her final weeks of high school and nobody even knows her name, thanks largely to popular mean girl Riley, who has constantly dissed and undermined Erika throughout school. But when her best friend Gia convinces Erika to go to a big high school party, Erika overcomes her shyness and becomes the toast of the evening — even capturing the attention of sexy Jake C, Riley’s recent ex. However, when the hungover Gia and Erika retrace their steps the day after to find Erika’s missing necklace, they may have a surprise in store — a shock thattakes Erika’s finally on-track life in a wholly unexpected direction — to say the very least.
