When Orlando strides in as the new kid at Arden High, Ross falls for him in an instant. A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse, Orlando is the Breakfast Club all rolled up into one, Ross's perfect man. Unfortunately, when they meet at the football try-outs, Ross is in drag to spite his draconian dad, Coach Fredericks, and it's "Rosalind" that Orlando falls head-over-heels in love with. When Ross tries to come clean, a misunderstanding ends up in a crazy game, with Ross roleplaying "Rosalind" so Orlando can practice his romance, and Orlando still believing there's a real "Rosalind" to be found. As Orlando searches for his true love, and Ross is torn between truth and fantasy, mixed signals and mixed feelings abound in this contemporary retelling of As You Like It--re-envisioned as a screenplay for a high school movie--until Ross, Orlando and everyone around them must ask the crucial question: just what is it that you want?
