MAN UP! (Feature Film)


Synopsis: Tom is an introverted 16-year-old, ready to start at a new high school. Tom plays by the rules and just wants to fit in and not disappoint anyone. As always, he can count on his popular older brother, who’s destined for a sports future. Best of friends, Tom can always rely on Leo for advice and tips. Especially important are his older brother’s social strategies: how to integrate with the “right crowd”, as well as how to navigate difficult situations, both on the basketball court and off. His advice for the long-term and on a daily basis is invaluable, as only a big brother’s can be. However, at some point it becomes clear that Tom must learn to be there for himself and not lean on his mentor. Can he truly “man up”?
