Item Summary

No. of item(s):
Total amount:

Sam would describe himself as any awkward and ordinary teenager simply trying to finish high school and get on with life. His tame (ie, boring) lifestyle and dilemmas over post-graduation skid to a halt when he meets Samuel. A strange, but unassuming boy with sarcastic wit and a taste for the more exciting side of life.
As their friendship blooms from a lunchtime arrangement into something more, Sam starts to remember what he’d been missing from life: actually enjoying it. However, their passions are put to the test when Samuel’s secrets become unveiled.
Love conquers all, right?
