From the sealed VHS box cover:
Trust. Seduction. Betrayal.
Hot young stars, a hip, driving soundtrack plus a provocative tale of jealousy and betrayal combine to create this controversial modern-day version of Shakespeare’s classic, “Othello.” O is Odin James, the school’s basketball player and future NBA hopeful. He has the adoration of all, including the team’s coach and the Dean’s beautiful daughter, Desi. Odin’s troubled friend Hugo, the coach’s son, is deeply resentful of his father’s preference of Odin on and off the court. When Hugo plots a diabolical scheme to sow the seeds of mistrust between O and Desi, it sets in motion a disturbing chain of events which erupts into a firestorm of breathtaking intensity. “O” is a stunning tale that will stay with you long after its final, powerful frame.
