Five hundred years ago Juliet admonished Romeo not to swear his love for her on the Inconstant Moon because she needed to know if she could trust him.

Although today’s Christie University students are older than Shakespeare’s immortal lovers, they face many of the same issues.

“Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose,”

or, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Navigating the shoals of adulthood hasn’t gotten any easier, but even so, when someone is brutally attacked on campus, the students at Christie U discover their illusions of safety and dreams of invulnerability are shattered forever.

It all comes down to the eternal question:

Who can you trust?
