Tim is a bit of a loner. At school he gravitates towards another shy boy and they become friends. But the verbal and physical bullying by a gang of kids, as well as an aggressive use of social media, unsettle Tim’s new mate and he backs away from him – an act of cowardice which will have serious repercussions. As a result of Tim’s unwillingness to snitch, the bullies appear to get away with their actions, none more so than the gang’s leader Jeff. He’s one of the school’s star athletes, who seems guaranteed a place in the national championships with an 800m time of 1.54 minutes. When Tim decides to start training in order to go up against Jeff, even having a girlfriend as cover, his enemies seem willing to go to any lengths to stop him.

**Admit and face the reality than to get the same treatment by avoiding them!** Great cast, even the concept was nice, but a missed opportunity for sure. Bully, LGBT, there were lots of things the film highlighted, but did not choose the right path to ride on with. Everything was overshadowed by the negatives. When I was watching the film, I was very uncomfortable throughout. Because I have kept anticipating the best things to take over at any time, but that never came. Even the sport part was kind of incomplete. The film was a fiction, but even partially that's how things happen in Canada, then Canada is too far behind from all the western world. The film should have been an inspiring tale, or at least an awareness tale. It was a gay theme, though not a romance film. An eleventh grade Tim is avoiding his sexual identity to escape the embarrassment, particularly from the school bullies. But it's too late now, which cost him a big. As a response, he takes a challenge. And now he needs to prove his sexuality, but not everything goes as he had planned. The remaining story takes a crucial twist where everything comes to halt suddenly. Yeah, I think that sudden ending is not convincing. Especially after too many turns in the story development, I actually was expecting the best way to conclude. So not everybody would be happy with that part. Though it was not a bad idea, only they did not make it in a better way. The title too was a little diversion, from prediction. So don't expect, everything's going to be fine kind of film. More like I felt it is made for sadist mindset people. Because you can't encourage such film, particularly its contents which makes unease most of the time. _4/10_
