Whenever a farm kid gets accepted to a fancy college, there is the potential for comedy or for thriller-like tragedy. From the opening voice-over narration, Stonebrook opts to be the fish-out-of-water thriller. With the help of a friend of the family, 23-year-old Erik gets a scholarship to the Ivy League-type school called Stonebrook. His dorm-mate is a nerdy hacker named Cornelius. When his scholarship is yanked, the two of them team up to pull increasingly ambitious scams to keep him in tuition money, eventually crossing paths with mob boss Mr. Tali.
