Jerome, a teenager from the suburbs passionate about art, goes to New York City's Strathmore College as a drawing major. Competition and petty jealousy consume both the faculty and students. It's so competitive that the first semester ends with a best-student award. Worse, there is a campus wide strangler on a killing spree. Naive Jerome falls in love with Audrey, a student who models nude for life-drawing classes and who responds to his attention and that of most other men. But Jerome has a rival in the more mature looking Jonah, also a first-year drawing student, whose art draws raves from Audrey and others.
