Storyline

Two little girls hide in the boys' bathroom at school so they can find out what happens there. When two boys come in, the four gradually talk each other into taking off their clothes. The principal catches them, and angrily berates them for what they've been up to, warning them that he'll have to tell their parents about the incident. Later repercussions are seen as parents of three of them separately discuss and fight about what has happened, with some taking a winking attitude of their child's discovery and others battling about how to react. Returning to school poses an additional challenge, as everyone has found out what has gone on. Written by scgary66

a delightful, interesting and thoughtful award winning short.
18 December 2002 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

this was the directorial debut of the marvellously talented dyan cannon which basically deals with the subject of pre adolescent sexuality which is sensitively and intelligently handled. the excellant allen garfield provides a lovely cameo along with gary lockwood and a group of children who portray the main characters. well worth seeing.
