A shocking non-romantic love story that does not shelter kids from the reality of what other kids go through. A commentary on our need for healing and empathy from a 12 yr old in crises losing faith in integrity.
Mills is a middle schooler addicted to tagging. His home life is mess with an abusive dad and a mom who doesn't believe him. His school life isn't much better. A sympathetic teacher and champion of at risk kids enters his life, Tim. And as much as Mills pulls away, he finds himself compelled to try to trust, just one more time.
I saw this movie as part of a school event, where the director himself came in to show his film, and talk about it. This is a true story about the director's life, and it holds nothing back from the viewer. It's darkly brutal, but above all, it has a real heart at its core, and a message of empathy that anyone can understand. This is definitely a hard film to watch, but it deserves your full attention.
