Overview

A misfit metalhead from the Northern Territories endures relentless bullying after surviving a family tragedy that left him scarred both physically and emotionally in this poignant teen drama based on a novel by Richard Van Camp. Larry Sole Joel Nathan Evans lives in an isolated community where most teenagers pass the time with drinking and sports. A member of the Tlicho First Nation, his extreme musical tastes and general disinterest in such frivolous pastimes make him not only a target for adolescent aggressor Darcy Adam Butcher, but a virtual unknown to Juliet Chloe Rose, the pretty girl whom he quietly pines for. When rebellious Aboriginal Johnny Kiowa Gordon transfers to their school and quickly puts Darcy in his place, both Larry and Juliet are impulsively drawn to their fearless new classmate. As a tender friendship blossoms between Larry and Johnny, so does a passionate romance between Juliet and Johnny. The moment Larry summons the courage to stand up for himself, however, a painful secret from his troubled past threatens to make him more of an outcast than ever before.
