This scripted reality show follows the life of five college male students as they struggle through the semester while balancing their social lives and learning the meaning of LOVE.

Director Statement

Filmmaking became a way for me to express myself fearlessly. It allowed me play on my fear of expression and discover that I live in a world where many people are afraid to show their weaknesses, not realizing that it is our weaknesses that builds our strengths. And those same weaknesses tell great stories... visually :)
