Bad Boys w/t (1 x 60′) – A film about a group of young boys entering adolescence whose hard knocks in life have led them to a specialist boarding school for boys with emotional and behavioural difficulties. In a world full of rules, the boys kick back against authority and assert their often colourful personalities. Each with their own problems to overcome, from anger management to illiteracy, we follow them as they confront themselves and try to grow from misfits into young men. Shot observationally and affectionately from the boy’s perspective and filmed, we discover that being excluded from the mainstream system doesn’t stop you from having a fighting chance in life.
