College – A place where young adults gather to grow, learn, and mature together. At least, that’s what it’s supposed to be. But when Crave, a seriously-juiced version of Tinder takes one campus by storm, everyone’s attention turns from education to fornication. The lives of friends and fellow students Albert and David are turned upside down when an explosion of romance and drama consumes their university.

Breakups are happening left and right, while students get with professors as love is made throughout the school. The sudden increase in physical attraction and intimacy is a direct result of promptings sent out by the app. David leaves his girlfriend Charlotte, as he is clearly interested in the mysterious “Alexandra”. Albert has a crush on Sofia, and Crave instructs Albert to head into an elevator where he ends up trapped with his love interest.

Hidden-User has sent David a bunch of sexy photos of Alexandra, but who is this Hidden-User? And what will David do when confronted with Alexandra in the library? Meanwhile, Albert and Sofia are still trapped in the elevator, but things start to escalate in the campus corridors…

Will Albert and Sofia find a love connection in such a place? The Crave app seems very successful as a matchmaker thus far, so our money is on “yes”. David’s love life is more complicated. We don’t know why his relationship with Charlotte didn’t work, but we do know that David once had a date planned with Alexandra. She canceled, with seemingly no explanation.

With an unknown individual sending David erotic images of Alexandra (like those seen on the cover art) via Crave, the situation is getting messier.
