Storyline

After seemingly ordinary 15-year-old Leland stuns his quiet suburban community with a chilling crime, he is sent to juvenile hall where he meets Pearl, a teacher and aspiring writer who dreams of making Leland’s compelling story into a book. As Pearl digs deeper into Leland’s life and the people caught up in it – his mother, his famous writer-father, and his troubled girlfriend – he uncovers Leland’s disturbing motive. The tables soon turn when the enigmatic teen forces Pearl to examine his own morally questionable behaviour. Climaxing with a shocking collision of violence, understanding, and hope, Leland will take you to states you never imagined.
