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 (17), Gregg (17) and Kev (18) can't wait for 'real life' to finally begin. While the three boys are all driven by a lust for life, they couldn't be more different. Bilal is a force of nature with no regard for rules. Gregg is Bilals calm counterpart. Kevin is struggling to be more self confident. In De Libi Bilal, Gregg and Kev are driven apart by the looming end of high school life, only to ultimately learn their friendship doesn't depend on their chosen paths.
