Determined to reinvent himself, Eric returns to high school after summer vacation tanned, muscular, and confident. But when he spontaneously brags to his classmates that he has a pet monkey, everything changes. Just as Eric’s geek-o-meter levels start to decrease and the supper-hot Stacie Hansen begins to notice him, his science teacher volunteers Eric’s fictitious pet primate as the latest class project. With the help of a zoo webcam, Eric frantically begins researching what monkeys eat, how they sleep, and their natural habitats. Forced to relay his findings to his science class, Eric unintentionally discovers the dangers that jeopardize not only his fabricated monkey, Blue, but also the rain forest as a whole. Now, he must decide whether he’s willing to sacrifice his new social success and relationship with Stacie in order to do what’s right.
