This integrated media series is a promotional website for A Night of Mistakes, a short movie about the implications from a night of underage drinking. It stars Chase Daniels, a star athlete from an underprivileged family who attends a party and partakes in drinking, drug use and even sexual relations. This leads to immediate implications with his parents, his personal life and education as he impregnates a girl from the party. After a series of events that unfolds from that night of partying, Chase looks back and realizes that it really was not worth it. The website for the unreleased movie will help educate children about underage drinking.
