Seemingly in constant trouble at school, 14-year-old Antoine returns at the end of every day to a drab, unhappy home life. His parents have little money and bicker constantly and he sleeps on a couch that's been pushed into the kitchen.

He decides to skip school and begins a downward spiral of lies and theft. His parents are at their wits' end, and after he's stopped by the police, they decide the best thing would be to let Antoine face the consequences - he's sent to a juvenile detention facility.

Cine-real is one of the only film clubs in the UK to exclusively play films in their original 16mm format. Cine Real is a non-profit organisation which aims to unite film makers and enthusiasts in their appreciation of classic film.
