More invested in subversive, effete classic rock than the brutish, macho rugby culture favored by his peers, 16-year-old Ned seeks to draw as little attention to himself as possible as he endures his sentence at boarding school. Things take a radical turn, however, when Ned befriends Connor, a dashing rugby wizard with a secret only Ned knows.

Witty, wise and delicate, Irish filmmaker John Butler’s sophomore feature vividly invokes those years of adolescent angst. Both Ned and Connor are forced to reckon with questions of loyalty and self-interest while stumbling toward the realization that being true to yourself is the only way to truly be in the world.
