The Clearwater Film Festival

DETENTION

Director: Aden Shillito.
A school boy struggles to expose the suspicious behavior of the one-eyed caretaker at his primary school, only to find that life is vastly more complex than he could ever have imagined. When Nick Atley sees his school caretaker at the school after hours his suspicion is aroused - what is the man up to? In his efforts to discover the truth the boy goes have the quiet boy of his class to being the subject of concern given his odd behaviour. Faced being disbelieved at every turn, the boy steals a key and by night accesses the school cellar where the caretaker works, finding both an alien presence and the involvement of other school staff. While the invaders plans are thwarted, their exposure is concealed and Nick is left to wonder if he might not have imagined everything he has seen after all.
