A coming-of-age tale with a difference. Our two heroes are two schoolboys, in the American South, back in the 1970s. They have to endure a Catholic education at the hands of a stern sister, and seek escape in drawing comic books in which they are the heroes and she the villian. One day, she catches them, and they set about planning suitable revenge. To make matters more complicated, one of the boys is experiencing his first love... Note: the film has nothing to do with priests-and-boys sex.
