A troubled high school student forced to repeat her senior year gets swept up in a bizarre love triangle in this coming of age drama from writer/director Kate Melville. Claire Paxton (Tatiana Maslany) has always been a rebel, but lately her wild side has gotten the best of her. When slipping grades and poor attendance sink her chance of graduating on time, Claire takes the setback in stride, and keeps on partying. Her personal problems seem so far away when she's dancing in the club, and an impulsive affair with Toronto rocker James (Steven McCarthy) makes her feel like she's moving with the pulse of the city. Back at school, however, Claire begins to find real substance in her burgeoning romance with shy science geek Henry (Spencer Van Wyck), the boy she used to babysit. These days Henry is all grown up, and he's never forgotten his first love Claire. Noticing that Henry could use some help getting noticed at school, Claire vows to give him a popularity boost. Meanwhile, with adolescence in the rear view and adulthood on the horizon, the defiant girl struggles to find a place where she truly belongs.
