About That Life

Three friends are driven apart by impending end to high school life, only to learn that friendship doesn't depend on chosen life paths.

Bilal, Gregg and Kevin can't wait for 'real life' to begin. While the three boys are driven by a compelling lust for life, as friends they couldn't be any more different. Bilal dreams big, is a force of nature with heaps of self confidence and has no regard for rules. Gregg is Bilal's calm opposite while Kevin is struggling to be more self confident. But as the end of school life looms, the three learn that friendship can continue independent of their chosen life paths.
