Freshman Year is a faith – based college movie about coming of age. It is centered around CJ, an African American male, who grows up in a very protective Christian home and leaves home for the first time for UCLA. At school, he is overwhelmed by his new-found freedom and independence. He struggles with balancing his faith with the desire to fit in and falling in love. CJ, a pastor’s son, goes to college and discovers that living in the real world – from peer pressure to falling in love – has real consequences, putting his faith to the test.
