A group of children find themselves caught up in a tragic lie when an innocent game goes horrifically wrong in this stunning first feature from David Gordon Green.

This stunning first feature by 25-year-old director David Gordon Green captures one hot summer in the lives of a group of children in a poor rural North Carolina town.

When an innocent game goes horrifically wrong, the kids find themselves caught up in a tragic lie, catapulted into a world of adult choices. A hauntingly beautiful, warm, compassionate and humorous film that lingers in the mind long after the closing credits.
