Brings to life moments that all youth are confronted with on a daily basis: making the right decisions. While under the influence, these adolescents mistake dangers of the following the fun of a Halloween party. The film portrays the sudden consequences found when the all-to-common events take a turn for the worst. A cinema verite documentary style approach fused with modern motifs allows for the narration by Jason Carley, a Native American born to the La Coutre Oreilles tribe in Northern Wisconsin, to remind us all that, "what can be seen as fun can be deadly."
