After high-schooler Brent Mitchell (Xavier Samuel) wraps his car around a tree, killing his father, he escapes into a marijuana-fuelled world of heavy metal music to block the pain and guilt. He is kept grounded by his beautiful and caring girlfriend Holly, whom is also his date for the upcoming school formal dance.
As graduation approaches, Lola Stone, the weirdest girl in school, asks Brent to the dance but is turned down. Hours before the dance and under the glittering light of a disco ball, Brent wakes up to a nightmarish sequence of events involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails and power drills. Brent has become the prom king at a macabre, sadistic dance where he is the entertainment.
