Synopsis:
After a summer away at camp, Phil returns home to find that his mother and twin sister aren't speaking to one another. Not willing to confront his family during the last days of the summer holidays, Phil escapes to hang out with his best friend, Kat, eating ice-creams and playing dress-up. As the school year begins, a new student arrives - the handsome and mysterious Nicholas. Smitten, Phil watches his crush as he runs around the track after school, and he's thrilled when Nicholas returns his feelings. However, when first love's volatility comes to light, Phil realizes he must deal with the problems of his past, in order to deal with the issues of his present.
