Overview

A Toronto teen finds his view of the world forever changed by what first appeared to be a typical drug deal, but subsequently yields severe consequences, in this period drama from writer/director David Bezmozgis. Toronto, 1988: The school year is nearing an end as the long Victoria Day weekend signals the onset of summer. Wayne Gretzky is leading the Edmonton Oilers into the Stanley Cup finals, and Bob Dylan is coming to town. Sixteen year old Ben Spektor and his best friends Sammy and Noah all have tickets to the show. It may be the 1980s, but these three teens are absorbed in the culture and music of the 1960s. As the three friends arrive at the concert venue, Ben spies two teenagers outside buying drugs. Though he thinks little of it at the time, the exchange will soon come back to haunt him. So much can happen in a week, and as the search for a missing teen commences a few days later, disparate forces begin converging upon the conflicted adolescent. Later entering into a relationship with the missing boy's sister and witnessing a bizarre Vietnam reenactment using Victoria Day firecrackers, Ben finds his first steps into adulthood becoming unusually precarious.
