A Student, His Teacher, Crossing Boundaries.
Behind a facade of suburban middle class perfection, David's home life is falling apart. As he tries to cope with the impossible situation, the troubled and impressionable teenager falls under the spell of Kenny, a gorgeous, thirty-something, has-been actor turned theatre coach. When Kenny's "support" escalates into seduction, David slowly descends into an abyss of drinking and drug addition from which he must escape if he is to survive.
CRUTCH is a dramatic tale of the confusion of youth and the difficulties in finding oneself.
