Two boys from dissimilar backgrounds, one trying to stay out of jail, the other privileged and seemingly destined for greatness. Thrown together by chance and imperfectly aware of just how much they need one another, the boys struggle to overcome the divides that separate them and only slowly begin to recognize they may share more in common than they could have ever imagined.
And yet whether they’ll be able to overcome their fears, doubts and insecurities and open up to one another remains to be seen. That’s the premise of The Opened Door, a story about good and evil as well as a testimonial to the power of friendship and what’s possible if you believe in yourself.
The Opened Door is about a time in life when possibilities seem endless but nothing is certain; about having more questions than answers; about being confused but being unable to admit it, instead pretending to know more than you do; and finally it’s about being used and abused by others because you’re too young and inexperienced to know any better.
It’s about being young and on your own and finally having to take responsibility for your life; above all, it’s a story about falling in love for the very first time and having the courage to risk everything without knowing exactly how things will turn out.
