The Screen Guide

Placid Lake is a kid who follows his instincts; follows them so far they lead him to convalescing in a full body cast and pondering whether following your heart is good for your health. Deciding it isn't, he must take the road more travelled. Be normal, fit in. Even if it kills you.
