Boy and Girl, two teens approaching adulthood, are drawn to a world beyond the restrictive walls of their rural New Zealand community. One day, Boy and Girl take the long way home after school. As they walk through their small town, their dreams, fears and secrets are exposed. Their search for truth leads them to a late night decision that could change their lives forever.
