Two stories of teenagers trying to fit into the crowd. In Real Love, Raina, newly arrived from Cleveland to St. Petersburg, Florida, establishes her place at "Hollywood High," but finds herself competing with another girl for the boy she loves. In Sweet Thing, Kandi is the flyest girl in school, partly due to a great wardrobe she shoplifts on the sly. Josiah, better known as "Thing" due to his crater face, atrocious smell, and his higher than average intelligence, yearns to be seen by Kandi, but his chances seem to be next to nothing.
