Impatient to grow and become a man, 11 year-old Robert is stuck on a boating holiday with only his parents and his curiosity for company.

(Worldwide Short Film Festival, Toronto, 2011)
"A funny and gently skewed vision of pre-teen sexual awakening... strong acting and accomplished direction"
(Encounters International Film Festival, 2011)
"Careful and nuanced... Ellis never pulls his punches but makes room here for sensitive study between the dramatic shocks"
(Sight and Sound, 2011)
