What do you do if you're the newly elected class president and you don't want to have the same old prom yet again? Since you're also head of the prom decoration committee, you select a twist on Shakespeare's that speaks to our time. But when one of Helena's classmates hatches a plan to thwart this prom that flies in the face of their expectations, will the other become an accomplice and put an end to this “threat” to tradition? Or will he discover the magic of diverse perspectives—and that the universe is more alive than he ever knew?
