When you are not just one of the boys!

Youth captured with all of the joys, delicacies and frustrations.

The soundscape is stunning. The film is immaculate.

The(ir) Blurb...

The 15-year old Kay lives a boy's life in between roaring motorcross bikes. With his friends he hangs out and sneaks up on girls. But deep inside of him something has been nagging for a long time. Something of this life doesn't feel like it fits, like a jacket in the wrong size. When the enchanting Melody sails into his life on a big boat, their flourishing friendship lures him towards this dormant feeling. He looks at her in awe, but not like most teenage boys. His true self pushes through. When it turns out they both had a different idea about their friendship, Kay doesn't know what to feel and to do anymore. He decides to drastically go against his feelings and Kay gets even more tangled up in his own confusion.
