16-year-old Tom is a sensitive teenager who is about to enter a new high school after being expelled. He intends to find his place, make friends, and even get a girlfriend - all with the support of his older brother, Leo. However, Leo’s coaching hides a destructive temperament that Tom must confront, ultimately deciding if he will follow his brother or if he will grow up finding his own path? Director Benjamin Parent’s directorial debut effortlessly injects its serious subject matter with humor, drawing smiles from its audience as it navigates difficult subject matter to present a sincere and often overlooked perspective on what it truly means to be a man.
