The "smokers" are a trio of rebellious teenage girls attending the posh Lindenhurst Academy in the midwest Karen, the wild one, leads the group through increasingly crazy antics; Jefferson, the arty one, keeps things under control; and Lisa, the shy one, is just happy to be included int her two friends' schemes. All three teens have been looking for love for a long time, but in their jaded world of absentee parents, easy money, and casual sex, use and abuse is more the modus operandi. The smokers decide they've had it with being victims of all the smirking boys at school who've held them up as "conquests," and come up with a solution of their own to ensure they get the power and respect they've always craved.
