Synopsis

After a decade or so, Arney returns to his high school to relive some of the memories of his coming-of-age. Along his nostalgic journey, we meet friends and family members who helped him along the way, including his arch nemesis, Henry. 
Little does Arney realise, that Henry, (the golden boy), is battling more than the usual challenges of the rugby field… 
What follows, is a delightful and heartwarming jaunt into the world of teenagers, first love, basic pranks, and redemption.
