Synopsis

Five teens in five two-minute scenes experience the cruel ups and downs of any old school day. At first, Kade seems to be a real jerk. He whips a ball at this kid for no reason! But in the very next scene, we find ourselves marching backward in time and realize that Kade was smacked down—literally and figuratively—by a so-called friend just moments before. Scene by scene, this same dynamic plays out as the injured becomes the perpetrator. And there’s no end in sight.
