Set in the rolling hills of the English countryside, Philophobia is a wholly original take at the high school movie genre. Juxtaposed against a backdrop of densely-wooded greens and small-town English pleasantries, aspiring writer Kai and his buddies are gearing up for their last week of high school. Otherwise, he’s up on the library roof, slinging back beers and blunts with old chums like Megsy, plotting the ultimate leavers’ prank, and staring at the girl living across street. After a fateful encounter with one of the most beautiful girls at school, our pedantic poet is thrown into the hot-seat of romance and intrigue. He struggles to keep himself and his love life in one piece.
