For popular student Franky, home life is a bit more complicated than it is for most teenagers. Dealing with the repercussions of his father leaving his mother for another man, the breakdown of his seemingly perfect family has left him with a few emotional issues. School, on the other hand, is great. Not only does Franky have a loving girlfriend, he also has the support of his long-time best friend, the ever reliable Ballas. But Franky’s world is about to get turned upside down once again when an unexpected encounter at his 16th birthday party has some fateful consequences. Teens grappling with their sexualities are familiar fodder for queer cinema, but with his sensitively observed coming-of-age tale, director Keith Behrman sidesteps the expected cliches, offering up something quite special indeed.
