The Wise Kids takes place in the transitional space between high school and college, when life seems to be all questions and no answers, and the future is scarily wide open. Set in and around a Charleston, SC Baptist church, weaving through this ensemble piece are three main characters - Brea, an introspective pastor’s daughter experiencing debilitating doubt, the hyperactive Laura, Brea’s best friend and a devout believer, and gay teen Tim who draws strength from the support of his PFLAG Dad as he copes with the twists and turns of late adolescence. Tensions and buried feelings abound, as colleges are chosen and adults behave badly, and as Brea, Laura and Tim attempt to hang onto what they have, all the while yearning to break free.
The Wise Kids has a runtime of 91 minutes and is not rated.
