A gripping and disturbing teenage drama which examines the borders between closeness and emotional manipulation, with a stunning performance from newcomer Lily McInerny. Summer in Southern California. 17-year old Lea has had enough of her friends, her man-mad mother and the banality of life. When she meets Tom – charming, good-looking, twice her age – she doesn’t stop to ask whether his motives are as selfless and romantic as they seem. Yet, the further she distances herself from her peers and her family and the nearer she grows to this charismatic young man, the clearer it becomes that she is swimming in dangerous waters.
