Synopsis: Tagline: "If you're giving it away, how much can it be worth?"


When incurable romantic and college freshman Hope Armstrong gets dumped by her boyfriend Ben because she refuses to go all the way, she puts her virginity up for auction on the Internet to find out what it is really worth. An opportunistic journalism student takes the act of heartbreak and frustration and makes it into a national story. Movie star Steve Stone comes to woo Hope and rehabilitate his scoundrel image. Porn pusher Gene Licardi makes a million dollar bid to create publicity for his crumbling empire of filth. Ben tries to win Hope back but is pushed further away when Hope's jealous roommate Janine puts her claws into him. As the auction ends, who will have the highest bid in this romantic comedy about a girl becoming a woman?
