Misunderstood by their families and demoralized at school daily, their fury simmers quietly until an idea for vengeance offers them a terrifying release. Based on the acclaimed novel Project X by Jim Shepard, this unflinching look at adolescence explores how the powerful bonds of childhood friendship and search for belonging can become a matter of life or death.

“Adapting his original novel Project X along with co-writer Brett Haley (The Hero), author Jim Shepard revisits the traumas of growing up with uncommon sympathy and discernment. Never condescending or outwardly critical of his characters’ shortcomings, director Vincent Grashaw's approach is primarily observational, allowing the inexorability of escalating events to take hold.”
