Storyline

Franky Winter has long been best friends with his high school classmate, Ballas Kohl, much like their parents, Carly and Ray Winter and Angie and Nic Kohl, have been friends, although Ray is now the odd person out since the recent divorce when he realized he was in love with a man, his current partner, Brendan. Franky and Ballas are among the popular group of students, and are on the school swim team together, Ballas the team captain. While Ballas has just started a sexual relationship with Jessica, Franky in turn could have his choice of any girl - at least according to the scuttlebutt provided to him by his friend Mouse, a boy trapped in a girl's body, from what she overhears in the girls' washroom - but has chosen to date Cil, they planning to have their first sexual encounter the night of his seventeenth birthday party. Franky's first was almost Ballas' younger sister, Tash, who has just returned to school following "the incident" for which she is now labeled a slut and she ... Written by Huggo

Truth? Well, consequences.
7 April 2019 | by chong_anSee all my reviews

This is centered around a murky, drunken sexual encounter, where the participants have different recollections of who did what to whom. However, most of the film deals with the consequences, emotional or otherwise, and is a plea for acceptance of people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity.

Ballas identifies as straight, though maybe too vigorously. Franky is more of an enigma, at times seemingly more interested in long-time best friend Ballas than the girls he is hitting bases with. Then there is the gay father and the girl with the strap-on penis, adding up to a panoply of identities.

The adults come off reasonably well, except for the swim team coach. (Shot in Sault St. Marie, Ontario, if uses an actual high school swim team as background.) While the school has a no-harassment policy, his response to allegations seems a bit weak.
