Synopsis

Adam (Jackson Martin), 15, and his parents are spending summer vacation at a cottage near Thunder Bay on Lake Superior.

Adam makes friends with cousins Riley and Nate, a couple of tough and angry kids who are spending the summer with their grandmother. The cousins are violent, without conscience and numb to human emotion, and even though they make fun of Adam when he gets hurt and bloody, he continues to value their friendship.

When Riley finds out a secret about Adam's father, it sets off a series of irreversible events that change the boys forever.

  • 4 stars "The film is VERY well done. Darker than your average "coming of age" movie, but more realistic. The young actors deserve kudos."
