People You May Know follows Jo, a college sophomore, and her brother Becket, a high school senior. Jo takes time off from school and returns home due to mental health reasons, while Becket heads off to a college admissions event with his best friend. We follow the siblings as they wade through the emotional turmoil that comes with sexual assault, as the survivor and the accused. As they struggle to find their truth, the siblings must grapple with their relationship to their home, their university, and ultimately each other.
