THE FILM: High school is a very crucial time of transition and change. Through the stories of fictional characters Steve (Michael Emery), Grant (Rob Roy), Samantha (Sigi Gradwohl), and Seth (Sam Gasch), the film examines how teenagers experience social and emotional pressures. The film delves into the topics of bullying and the teen LGBT community. Steve’s bullying ways at school is flipped on its side when the curtain to his home life is pulled back to show the root of his ways stems from his abusive father. Star athlete Grant learns slowly that his secret isn’t something he needs to hide when he finds support in the high school’s LGBT group and has the opportunity to participate in discussions about shared experiences. The film explores the meaning of gender roles and how we can better support the community.
