Professor Goodwin assigns a provocative project to his journalism students: identify the link between news and gossip. Arrogant yet charismatic student Derrick Webb stumbles upon the perfect subject for the assignment when he spies beautiful, chaste Naomi Preston locked in a drunken, passionate embrace with Beau Edson. With fellow university classmates Jones and Travis, Derrick concocts an incendiary rumor that quickly rages out of control, leading to deadly consequences.
