theme

The teenage boy is medically diagnosed with schizophrenia. The film contains several scenes in which he experiences auditory and visual hallucinations, some of which are prolonged and distressing. There are also scenes in which he is verbally bullied. However, the film's overall treatment of this theme is sensitive and shows how positive outcomes can be achieved from adversity.


There is a scene in which a boy receives a chemical burn in a school laboratory; however, there is limited injury detail. In one scene, the protagonist exceeds his prescribed medication dosage, subsequently experiences a negative reaction, becomes increasingly agitated, falls from a height and is injured. He is rapidly treated and recovers. He briefly imagines voices telling him to take his own life. There is also brief mild violence.
