Canada / 2015 / Color / 80mins

Desperate to prove that he isn’t an alcoholic, a homosexual, or a loser, David gets a job as a high school guidance counselor by faking his resume and lying about his past. During his counseling sessions with the students, he smokes with them and even offers them vodka. Everything he says to the students is obviously inappropriate yet also oddly appropriate. Quickly his approach spirals out of control, and long-hidden wounds surface, demanding everyone to take a closer look in the mirror.
