About the show

Retro Productions presents a story about a sex tape scandal circulating among the jocks at an elite boys’ school in 1988. More…

Prep-school senior Brandon Hardy is brilliant, athletic, popular and charming—the kind of student that makes St. Joe's School for Boys proud to call its own. However, his privileged life threatens to collapse when a disturbing videotape is found on campus. As the resulting scandal takes unexpected turns, Brandon's mother Elizabeth must sort fact from fiction from family and confront unsettling truths about her son, herself, and their life.
