Synopsis & Trailer

Mickey House is an 11-year-old who is increasingly frustrated with his changing body. He is no longer a child but he doesn’t know who he is. A loner at school, his mom is an enigma to him, and he finds solace in dealing in urine at school to put off the medical checks of other students. On top of hating everything that is happening to his body his imagination and reality blend together into a toxic mix and as everything takes a turn to the extreme, Mickey faces the fact – that growing up is not for kids.
