Movie propaganda

In the 'always on' but disaffected society of an elite high school, step-brothers Zack (Alex Russell) and Darren (Oliver Ackland) occupy opposite ends of the school's social hierarchy. At one of Zack's parties Xandrie (Adelaide Clemens), the only person with whom Darren ever connected, is drugged, assaulted and left for dead. After Xandrie doesn't show up at school Darren tries to find out what happened but no-one knows, says or does anything. No-one can or they just don't care.

When Xandrie finally does return to school it sets off a chain reaction with fatal results as Xandrie realises that nothing will be achieved by taking revenge. Darren decides that if he doesn't do something then no-one will. Darren's plan plays out at another one of Zack's parties and soon the brothers have their lives at the mercy of popular opinion.
