Now, in the Suburbs. Claryssa and Sebastian are best friends...and the class outcasts. One loves witchcraft and emo music; the other has body odor and obsesses about anime. After a night of brutal bullying by their classmates, their friendship is left in shambles, and Sebastian is faced with a task of apocalyptic proportions. An exacting look into the minds of troubled youth, directed by Michael Osinski, MFA Directing, Class of 2014. Recommended for mature audiences.
