High school senior Greg Reed (Deon Richmond) has it all...money, fame and girls. Unfortunately for him, it's all in his dreams. "G" spends so much time trippin', on what might happen, that he's about to miss out on what will happen. For his prom date, "G" sets his sights on Cinny Hawkins (Maia Campbell), the sharpest girl in school, and proceeds to learn some hard lessons about life and love. Yet, through it all, "G" develops newfound direction and motivation and finds that there's more to look forward to in life by keepin' it real.
