Andy (Chase Ellison) is wrestling with the struggles of 8th grade in 1965 California. While trying to win the affection of the "it" girl, Andy resents being paired with the class outcast for a school project by his teacher (Ed Harris), who's having trouble of his own dealing with bullies and the rumor mill. As they each contend with the right thing to do, everyone may learn valuable lessons about tolerance in this touching coming-of-age tale. Alexander Walters, Amy Madigan co-star. 102 min.
