High School Lover stars Franco as the father of 17-year-old Kelly (Paulina Singer, Orange is the New Black). One night, she meets Hollywood star Christian Booth (Francois Arnaud, The Borgias) and thinks she’ll never see him again until he starts texting her. He’s much older than she is, so her father forbids her from seeing him again. Christian becomes dangerously obsessed with Kelly and he has his own mysterious past.
