Sinopsis: Greg(Thomas Mann), srednjoškolac koji pokušava da se uklopi, izbjegava dublje veze kao znak strategije preživljavanja u navigaciji društvenog minskog polja koje nazivamo tinedžerskim godinama. On čak opisuje svog saputnika Earla(RJ Cyler), s kim pravi kratke parodije klasičnih filmova, kao ‘’saradnika’’, ne najboljeg prijatelja. Ali kada Gregova majka (Connie Britton) počne insistirati da  provodi vrijeme sa Rachel (Olivia Cooke)- djevojkom iz njegovog razreda kojoj je dijagnoziran rak- polako spoznaje koliko vrijede prava prijateljstva. 

Synopsis: Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoids deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life. He even describes his constant companion Earl (RJ Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a ‘co-worker’ than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) – a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer – he slowly discovers how worthwhile the true bonds of friendship can be.
