August Manning is a freshman at George Washington Carver high school. He is bright and funny and more than capable of handling himself in tough situations. August wants to go to college for free. To do this he has to figure out some things. There are a few obstacles in the way, but August is nothing if he's not resourceful. In an attempt to guarantee college entry he comes up with an improbable two-pronged plan which just might work. The plan is almost derailed when he meets a pretty girl. With the help of his cousin, star basketball player, BB, August and his best friends and a few others come together to attempt to achieve his grand goal. Just One Mo is a high school adventure of friends, who have known each other since grade school, trying to do what no one else was willing to do, while dealing with the drama of high school as well as peer pressure, the mean streets they walk down, girls, racial tensions and trying to get good grades.
