Two separate stories about the lives of teenagers and college students:

"Fiction," set on a college campus in the mid-80s, concerns female student Vi (Blair), who finds herself dangerously attracted to her creative-writing professor (Wisdom), also a Pulitzer Prize-winning black author, after he humiliates her cerebral palsy-afflicted boyfriend Marcus (Fitzpatrick) in front of the class.

In "Non-Fiction," Toby (Giamatti), an aspiring documentary filmmaker, selects slacker Scooby Livingston (Webber) as the main subject of his film on disillusioned high school youth.
