It's a new school year at Tides High on the California coast, and Dash, entering his sophomore year, is hopeful it will be a new start to his high school life, much like the physical structure of the school is going through renewal with, among other things, a new gymnasium being built on the top floor. He and Assaf, who write together on the school newspaper, the Tides Gazette, are each other's only true friend at the school - Dash the alpha between the two - no one in the school who reads the paper. The only other person with who they associate is Verti, the paper's editor. The school year doesn't start as Dash would hope as not only are he and Assaf and by association the newspaper as ignored as they were last year, but Assaf has found a new alpha in his life, namely Verti as the two embark on a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. But Dash ends up discovering something in the school's archives which has the potential to change fundamentally the nature of the school in its entirety, ... Written by Huggo

This animation is about a high school that falls into the sea after an earthquake. Students and staff inside the school try their best to survive.

Sweet Jesus, the animation is horrible. The colors are unrealistic, to the point that the grey people and the red people give me a headache. The colour palette is extremely varied, the brushes are broad and things are outlined. Even children's comics have better artisitic presentation of characters and backgrounds. I have no interest in the story or any of the characters, even after finishing the whole film. I suspect that you have to be very high to enjoy it.
