In this modern retelling of Emily Brontë's classic novel "Wuthering Heights," Cathy Earnshaw (Kwiatkowski) is an outcast at her wealthy Malibu high school, where she struggles to cope with her mother's tragic death. Sadness turns to exhilaration when her father brings in Heath (Jacobs), a troubled kid whose mother, a long-time employee of Mr. Earnshaw (Caan), is suddenly deported. Cathy and Heath are irresistibly drawn to each other, desperately filling the voids in each other's lives. But theirs is a destructive love, they rarely show up to class, and when they do it's chaos.

As Cathy's friends mock the unconventional, arrogant Heath, she feels even further isolated. Finally, Cathy caves to social pressure and breaks up with Heath for a more popular boy. Heath can't forgive her betrayal, and the two lovers start down a tragic path spurred by jealousy, pride, and their undeniable, consuming passion.
