As described by the festival jury, the film is "terrifyingly timely and brutally honest.[The film] uses film references to the extreme as dreams of youth and intense growing pains collide."

Synopsis provided by Slamdance:

Matt and Owen are best friends who live in a world of endless movie references and hijinks. It would be perfect, if not for the cruel bullies at their high school who make their lives hell. While working on a movie for class, the lines between fiction and reality blur together in this horrifying look at high school bullying.
