Mean Creek

Fortnight 2004, Feature film, 1h27

Synopsis

Set in a small Oregon town, a rag-tag group of troubled-and-not teenagers set out on a boat trip to celebrate the birthday of their youngest member, secretly part of a plot for playful payback against a local troublemaker. Cracks in the crew begin to form when some of the teens have second thoughts about what they are about to do. The teenagers face stark moral decisions that will haunt their lives forever.
