Storyline

Bullied high school student Tommy (Daniel Flaherty) is suddenly befriended by his chief tormentor, Matt (Kenton Duty), the school's most popular student and star athlete. Tommy is suspicious, but is forced to accept the awkward friendship in order to enter a cooking contest with a big prize. And besides, it's so much easier to impress his crush, Sarah (Katherine McNamara), when he's not getting beat up by Matt and his team. As the cooking contest heats up, Sarah sniffs out a conspiracy, but nobody wants to hear about it. Can Tommy trust his budding friendship with Matt or is it all a huge joke on him?

Circumstances create an alliance between teens who go on to grow and develop empathy.
12 January 2014 | by spidervintage-etsySee all my reviews

Very well done movie. I watched this with my grandchildren who liked the movie very much. The message was loud and clear and finely portrayed by an ensemble of good actors who were very appealing. I highly recommend this for ages 6 through teens. The end of the film was impressive as it showed both of the main characters had experienced changes and matured through the process of getting to know one another. Although I have watched many movies with my grandkids, I had never seen any of the actors before. It's clear that many of them are going on to careers that will give them more and more exposure. The movie was well directed by this first-time director and is to be applauded.
