Synopsis


I'm telling you.


I don't understand what's happening to me.


Nicolas is going through a difficult phase after his parents' divorce.


He's listless, skipping school, lying and thinks that moving in with his father and his new family may help.


A fresh start.


When he doesn't settle there either, he decides that going back to his mother's may be the answer.


When change feels like the only way to survive, what will he do when the options begin to run out?
