This is a coming-of-age story with a difference. The scene is set for a clash of cultures and desires as Emerson Thorsen, a bright 13-year-old son of hippy parents growing awareness of his own sexuality is combined with a burgeoning infatuation with his gay teacher (a great performance from festival favourite Daniel McIvor). Emerson knows no shame and is determined to pursue his love object.
