The lives of four black students at an Ivy League college.
The invitation for the party as shown in the trailer is almost verbatim the invitation for a real life party that occurred at the University of California, San Diego, on February 10th, 2010. The synopsis and film take many cues from the UCSD "Compton Cookout," an event run by one African American but attended by UCSD's predominately white and Asian student body. The event itself went fine, but news about it prompted a massive uproar on campus.

Colandrea 'Coco' Conners: Nobody called you that.
The flame on the candle in Sam's room on Halloween night is static, revealing that it is fake.
The end credits include photographs of the real-life blackface (and brownface) college parties that inspired the film's climax.
