Five explosive representations of youth burning a bright trail through the adolescent

Through a diverse cast of spirited individuals weaving amid the challenges and tribulations of adolescence, we witness potent explorations of issues relating to identity and belonging, attraction and the loss of innocence. Amid emotions acutely felt and identities in rampant flux we are plunged into the visceral state of youthful perception; inhabited by a vibrant cast of teenage cross dressers, outsiders, not-so-innocent youngsters and unwitting criminals.
