Australia | 2013 | 103 min.

It’s a sweltering summer before the final year of school and Billie and Laura share every secret except for Billie’s biggest secret – she’s crazy in love and is sleeping with Laura’s boyfriend Danny. When Billie’s social worker mum takes Isaac into her care, the delicate balance of the three friends’ lives is disrupted. Laura drifts away from Danny as she is drawn to the intense Isaac, while Isaac is compelled by Laura’s joy. Billie resents Isaac and is consumed by feelings of envy and betrayal. As the summer heat continues, the life the four friends know is changed forever – their secrets are revealed and they are left to confront the consequences.
