CGiii Comment

Here's a film that will make you cry...happy tears.

Teenage nerves, indecision and excitement...all captured perfectly.


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

A teenager like any other, Andri spends his time playing sports, learning to play the keyboard and hanging out with his friends. The exterior appearance is only that however, an appearance. His smile is forced, his laughter is rigid. He's playing a role, a role passed on to him by society. As Andri's desire for who he truly wants to be increases, the pressure builds.
