Amber: early - mid 20s, high-strung, talkative, charmingly neurotic. She does not present as insecur. She is Jewish.
Tom: early - mid 20s, appealing and confident with some swagger that conceals a deeper vulnerability. He is African-American.
Amber and Tom, finding their way as freshmen at Princeton, spend a night together that alters the course of their lives. They agree on the drinking, they agree on the attraction, but consent is foggy, and if unspoken, can it be called consent? With lyricism and wit, ACTUALLY investigates gender and race politics, our crippling desire to fit in, and the three sides to every story.
