Sushi Central

Picture of Sushi Central
Go out. Take a pill. Meet a boy. Dance. Recover. Repeat. Calvin is sixteen and out of control. Experienced but naïve, he and his friends feel disconnected from their safe, suburban world of private schools and four-wheel drives. They inhabit a world of their own design - a world of saccharine club anthems, where fun comes by the milligram and fashion is all that counts. Then Calvin meets Anthony, and the two boys form an obsessive bond. But as Calvin deals with the confusion of first love, he discovers pictures of Anthony on a website, and is drawn into a world more adult than he could have imagined. Sushi Central is a subversive black comedy about teen angst pushed to its final, self-destructive extremes. It is about the identities we create for ourselves, the fragile, impulsive nature of youth, and the fear of growing old.
