short film | 16 min | 2007

Naively infatuated with her soccer coach and desperate to impress the older, more experienced girls on her team, suburban high school freshman, Lilah, awkwardly embarks on a sexual escapade that threatens to destroy her only true friendship. Frank, funny, and touching, Shank explores the intersection between adolescent anguish and self discovery. It’s a real, ahem, coming of age story!
