Sixteen-year-old Angela (later seventeen), a high school student, meets 21-year-old Chad, and he invites her and her friend, Tenaya, to a party at his fraternity house in Los Angeles. At the party, Chad and Angela talk intimately. They begin to date and Angela finds out she is pregnant. Angela, after finding out she is pregnant, falls in love with Chad, and he swears to take care of her and the child since he was adopted at age 5 due to an imprisoned mother and an unknown father. After a disastrous dinner with Chad's adoptive mother where her biological son reacts badly to the news of the pregnancy, she phones Angela's mother and informs her of the pregnancy. Furious with their daughter, Angela's parents at first threaten to file statutory rape charges against Chad, but eventually are supportive of Angela, but suggest her and Chad take a break. Already beginning to see Chad's shortcomings, Angela ends the romance, infuriating Chad. Chad then begins stalking Angela and her family, and they file for a restraining order. When Chad violates the restraining order, he is arrested and sent to jail.
