Somewhere between Toronto and Parry Sound, between childhood and adolescence, 13-year-old Bea (Charlotte Salisbury) is on the edge of growing-up, and isn’t sure she likes what she sees, especially with her parents inching ever closer towards a divorce. This summer starts out feeling lonely, same as it ever was, until she meets the outspoken and boisterous Kate (Lucinda Armstrong Hall). Though Bea and Kate are seemingly opposites, they somehow fit together. Under Kate’s influence (and sometimes in spite of her), Bea starts to find her courage. But being brave has a price, especially when it means making a difficult choice between “never squealing” and speaking out. In the end, Bea stops being afraid, and in the process realizes that adults are sometimes just like kids, that best friends can be much more than friends and that, ultimately, love makes you stronger.

Filmed in Port Severn, Barrie and Parry Sound!
