Synopsis:
Ned, the bullied outsider, and Conor, a new boy and star athlete, are forced to room together at their cloistered boarding school. Conor is drafted into the senior rugby team, whose actions dominate school life and whose privilege and entitlement have made Ned’s life to date at the school a misery. Initially the boys take an instant and visceral dislike to each other, but then an unlikely friendship takes them both by surprise as they bond over music and begin practicing guitar together. While their sensitive and supportive English teacher, Mr. Sherry, encourages them to enter a local talent competition, their friendship isn’t appreciated by everyone, though, not least the rugby coach, Pascal, who has his own agenda, and who harbours some deep suspicions about Sherry.
