FILM SYNOPSIS:

Jacob has been wrestling with his peculiar identity. Belittled and misunderstood in the small-town community of which he lives, the thoughtful and persistent teenager typically finds refuge in the art of glass blowing. Now, a neighborhood friend named Kaylee returns home and is a bit surprised when Jacob quickly establishes their relationship in front of his older brother. Elliot, who has been studying at a seminary, begins scrutinizing Jacob’s well-being. Something seems awfully sketchy. In a desperate attempt to prove his normalcy, Jacob makes a move... in the riskiest way that he can imagine.
