Partners In Crime

The dead body of a school girl from a wealthy family is discovered by three of her school mates on a rainy evening. The boys with widely varying personalities find themselves bonding over the incident as they start hunting around for clues to her demise. Initially the it felt like a coming of age film turning in to detective noir, but you soon realize the director is taking us somewhere more dark and sinister. Schoolyard bullying and the loneliness of children are the actual topics examined here under the guise of a murder mystery.
