The Perfect Escape
Nate Jae-Woo Kim wants to be rich, just like everyone else at the elite private school where he's a scholarship student. When one of the wealthiest kids at school offers Nate a huge sum of money to commit grade fraud, he knows that taking the windfall would help support his prideful Korean family, help with college tuition, and jump start his new business. But is compromising his integrity worth it?
Then, fate steps in with another money-making opportunity. At his job at a zombie-themed escape room, Nate meets aspiring actress Kate. She's desperate for a fresh start after high school far away from her oppressive CEO father and persuades Nate to be her teammate in a survivalist competition. If they win the prize money, she can pursue her dreams and Nate can, too. Two teenagers, surviving the elements together for an entire weekend, while starting to fall in love…what could go wrong?
