Sixteen-year-old Shelby finds it difficult to balance her mother's dying request to live a life without restraint with her father's plans for his "little princess," which include attending a traditional father-daughter dance that culminates with a ceremonial vow to live "whole, pure lives."
Struggling with promises that she made her dying mother years ago and a new set of promises that her father will soon be asking of her, 17-year-old Shelby finds herself between a rock and a hard place. As a little girl, Shelby's mother made her promise to always listen to her father, love without limits, and set aside restraint for living life to the fullest. But when her father wants her to help him organize a Princess Ball, which includes Shelby vowing to stay pure in all ways, including being a virgin until marriage, the teen is horrified. Knowing that she'll be forced to follow the vows, Shelby decides the obvious answer is to lose her virginity before the ball. Of course, this doesn't go as smoothly as she plans, and Shelby learns about love, friendship, and family.
