Burlington, Ontario, 2003. Hyper-ambitious teenage cinephile Lawrence Kweller dreams of attending film school at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. In order to raise the hefty tuition fee, he gets his dream job at the local video store, Sequels. Wracked with anxiety about his future, Lawrence begins alienating the most important people in his life–his best friend, his single mother–all while developing a complicated friendship with his older female manager, Alana. As graduation looms ever closer, a series of painful realizations force Lawrence to confront the possibility that he may be a pretentious asshole.
