Strongly acted and confrontational drama
Strongly acted and confrontational drama about 10-year-old Johnny. He may have an angelic face, but his life circumstances are anything but heavenly. He has barely known his father. Now he lives in a run-down apartment with his single mother, who tumbles from one drunken one night stand into another, and his older brother and younger sister.
The arrival of a kind new teacher who firmly believes in Johnny opens new perspectives. As Johnny explores his emotions and sexuality, a student-mentor bond blossoms between the two that becomes increasingly personal. But what if Johnny crosses boundaries?
