Shorts in Competition: Student

World Premiere

USA | 16 MINUTES | English |


Seventeen-year-old Kenny lives in a rundown track home with his father, but every morning he rides his bike into the wealthier part of town for his lifeguarding job. Invisible to the moneyed moms and girls who populate the country club, Kenny spends his work hours stoned, fantasizing about the women around him. One in particular, Mrs. Jordan, has always caught his eye. After an act of heroism brings them together, he decides to try to act on his daydreams.

Note: This film will screen as part of the Shorts: Truth or Consequences program.
