After kicking off Grade 7 with the first “F” of her life, Nell (Sarah Madison Barrow) hopes to find solace in pancakes. She and her best friend Angie (Corale Knowles) just need to track down one last ingredient. Working from a wonderfully detailed script that’s attuned to the shorthand and encryption shared between kindred souls, Liz Cairns elicits amazing performances from Barrow and Knowles as young friends who find their lives profoundly changed by five minutes in a convenience store.
