ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA - A man obsessed with his ex-girlfriend and the sex lives of comic book heroes, female freshmen studying together for a Shakespeare midterm, a man cursed with a strange disease, and Little Red Riding Hood as you’ve never before seen.

Michael’s date, Elenor, is appalled when she finds out that Michael’s ex-girlfriend visits Michael’s apartment weekly to take away his stuff.
