World War II rages overseas, the prestigious Devon prep school holds a summer session for boys trying to graduate before they are drafted. Among the students are two unlikely new roomates - Gene, a quiet, introspective bookworm; and Finny, a carefree and wildly popular athlete. Charmed by Finny, Gene joins him for a series of exciting escapades. But when Gene's grades decline, he suspects that Finny secretly wants him to fail. Fueled by anger and envy, Gene and Finny's relationship reaches a breaking point - exploding in a stunning dramatic moment that changes their lives forever.

Contents: Separate peace.
Based on the book by John Knowles, it is a story of an odd couple set of young friends. One a bookish play by the rules kind of guy, and the other a popular jock who lives on the edge. One of them shares a secret. A secret of an event that changes their lives forever.
It's a darker "Dead Poets Society" of sorts.
