SUMMER SCARS is a coming-of-age thriller about gang of young teenagers who skip school to hang out in the woods where some hot rodding on a stolen moped changes the fate of their day. They crash into Peter, a disheveled drifter, who is delighted to have a group of kids to hang out with. First he gains their trust by joining in their games, but then his behaviour begins to change. Peter uses what he has learned about the kids against them, bullying the alpha boys, belittling the weaker ones and saving his worst for the only girl of the group. The kids realise too late that they are being held hostage, and when Peter acknowledges things have gone too far, that is when things really start to get scary.
