Synopsis: A contemporary, ensemble drama telling the complex tale of six high school students whose lives are interwoven with situations that so many of today's youth are faced with. The story takes place during a normal school day. At precisely 2:37 a tragedy will occur, affecting the lives of a group of students and their teachers. As the story unfolds, the individual stories of the six teenagers are revealed, each with its own explosive significance. An unwanted pregnancy unravels a terrible, dark secret; all is not as it appears for the seemingly confident school football hero; an outcast must deal with everyday taunts from his peers; a beautiful young girl battles an eating disorder; a stellar student constantly struggles to win his parents' approval; while another uses drugs to escape from his own demons.

ahead in numbers now.

Dwight Yorke making a run

to the corner flag.

Support waiting in the centre as well,

but it's still Giggs

on the edge of the area.

Past Keown now, past Dixon.

And a sensational goal!

How can Arsenal possibly come back

after such an unbelievable finish

as that?

Ryan Giggs surely has never hit

a more telling strike

semifinal for Manchester United.

And you'll have to wait a long time

to see another goal like that.

Back home in England,

me and my family,

we always lived in the same street,

the same house,

and all the neighbours and friends,

they knew my medical problems.

I've got one leg longer

than the other one

and, um, that gives me a limp.

I was also born with two urethras,

and one of them I can control,

and one of them just does

its own thing,

and... I wet myself, and...

it's really embarrassing.

Uh... I started school here

three months ago,

when we moved down here.

I used to have this saying

that the shit would hit the fan

but it would never hit me.

Recently it's really, really

started to stink.


Mel! Mel!

Listen, uh... Are you gonna be OK?



Hey, Mel.


What's up?

Not much.

Your mum still away?

Yeah. She is.

I haven't spoken to her for a while.

Oh, really?

When's she getting back?

I don't know.

Probably three weeks or so.

So you're home alone?

Yeah. It's just me and Marcus.

OK, there he is.

Good luck.

See you upstairs.

How you doing, Luke?


How are you?

Not bad.



I heard your story in English

did really well.

You know, it's, um...

...it's been said that exposure to...

...classical kinds

of music as a child

triggers these neural pathways

in your brain

that create this spatial,
