A high Schooler, Timothy, and his family is expecting a
French-Canadian male exchange student, that turns out to be an
attractive girl, to which Timothy proceeds to make a fool of
himself, trying to impress. When Michelle becomes ill from
drinking spiked punch at a party, Timothy notices a tattoo while
helping her to bed. He foolishly tells a friend about the tattoo,
who proceeds to tell the whole school, which does not go down
well with Michelle. Filmed at Avondale College and various
Auckland locations. A light film that has some fine acting and a
nice pop soundtrack.
