We are infinite
This could get kinky.

A teen arrives at his new school, already counting down the days until he can leave. He is 'adopted' by a brother-and-sister pair, who set about showing him the way to survive high school and come out of his shell. Things get complicated when he finds himself falling in love with his new friend.

|Comments||This film's impact is intensified by the complex and mature themes of teenage angst, loss, molestation, friendships, high school, psychological break-downs, secrets and family dysfunction. The mild to moderate language use also intensifies the impact of the film, making it unsuitable for viewers under 16 years of age who may not fully comprehend the complexity of the themes. This film does however have a strong educational value and the consequences of the the characters' behaviour is evident throughout.|
