Synopsis

Bullied high school student Tommy (Daniel Flaherty) is suddenly befriended by his chief tormentor, Matt (Kenton Duty), the school’s most popular student and star athlete. Tommy is suspicious, but is forced to accept the awkward friendship in order to enter a cooking contest with a big prize. And besides, it’s so much easier to impress his crush, Sarah (Katherine McNamara), when he’s not getting beat up by Matt and his team. As the cooking contest heats up, Sarah sniff s out a conspiracy, but nobody wants to hear about it. Can Tommy trust his budding friendship with Matt or is it all a huge joke on him.

Dove Review

This movie is about bullying and its effect on an unpopular kid. However, it has a twist. The kid that bullies becomes a friend to the student who is bullied. This is after name calling and physical abuse. But the bully learns he actually likes the kid when he gives him a chance.

The unpopular “nerdy” kid has something great happen to him by movie’s end. We recommend this movie for ages twelve plus.
