Five Feet and Rising | 1998
A chronicle of the sexual awakening of Victor, a twelve-year-old boy growing up in New York City's Lower East Side. On a hot summer day at the local pool, Victor is introduced to Amanda, an older girl from the neighborhood. Later, while waiting in line for the bathroom, they meet again. Unable to hold it any longer, Amanda takes matters into her own hands, drags Victor into a secluded corner, lowers her shorts and pees. Confronted by the conundrum of sudden intimacy, Victor does his best to keep cool, but quickly submits to his desire to watch her. The next day, Victor sets out to find Amanda. The journey that follows is one of unparalleled intensity for Victor, as he leaves the comfort and security of childhood behind, in search of the object of his desire.
