A Very Bright Girl
As a public protest over inferior facilities a high school senior girl decides to shower in the boy's locker room. That she is caught is not surprising, but the consequences are as she agrees to accept an old fashioned consequence in lieu of suspension in order to keep her valedictory honors. From there, everyone gets into the act. From Heidi's parents who rekindle the excitement of their newlywed days, to Heidi's boyfriend who gives Heidi a preview of what she will face, to the devious school secretary to the appointed female who will dish out the discipline, they all become caught up in Heidi's drama in ways that lead to some red bottoms and steamy encounters.

It all happens in the compressed time frame of just 31 hours.
