Morgan loves fly fishing in the river near her house. She also likes a boy, but believes that boys don’t like girls who fish. Compounded by the problem of smelling like a fish, Morgan is mocked for smelling like something else that supposedly smells like fish--though she doesn't quite know what it refers to yet. With dignity, swimming against the current, Morgan embodies an inspiring strength of character in the face of immature schoolyard bullies.

Themes: bullying, coming of age, outsider experience, shame/acceptance, youth empowerment, rumors

Advisory: The terms "pussy" and “lesbian” are used as pejoratives. A young girl pierces her own ear and it bleeds on screen.
