When Mary Cep, aka Lola, moves with her family from the big city of New York to a small suburb in New Jersey, her ego takes a hit when she realizes she's no longer the most popular girl in school. That honor is held by Carla (Megan Fox). However Lola does find a friend in Ella (Alison Pill), with whom she shares a love for the band Sidarthur. Lola means to oust Carla from her "most popular" title by trying out for the school's play, "Pygmalion," and she succeeds in nabbing the lead role, which Carla had wanted. As the war of popularity escalates, word spreads that Sidarthur has broken up and there's to be a farewell concert.
