Gia Coppola makes her feature directorial debut with this drama adapted from a series of short stories by James Franco, who stars as a soccer coach in the titular California town where bored teens begin to stir up trouble. April (Emma Roberts) is a virtuous soccer star whose impressive athleticism masks a deep-rooted timidity. Admired from afar by sensitive artist Teddy (Jack Kilmer), April earns some extra cash babysitting for her single coach Mr. B. (Franco), whose affection for his star player leads the pair into a risky affair. Meanwhile, Teddy continues to perform community service as the result of a DUI he received while stirring up trouble with his unpredictable friend Fred (Nat Wolff), whose seduction of promiscuous outsider Emile (Zoe Levin) begins to turn volatile as April gradually starts to respond to the affections of her not-so-secret admirer. Val Kilmer, Claudia Levy, and Chris Messina co-star.
