Campus queen Carolyn (Christina Ricci, in one of the 126 films she appeared in at this year’s Sundance Film Festival) is so determined to boost her sorority that she volunteers at the Challenged Games, where she meets wheelchair athlete Pumpkin (Hank Harris). Soon enough, Ricci finds herself falling for the jovial jock — and questioning her loyalty to the shocked school sisters.
