Adventures in Public School, developed through NSI Features First in 2014, tells the story of socially awkward Liam, who has been homeschooled his entire life. When he falls in love with a popular one-legged girl, he abandons his mother’s suffocating love and enrolls in public school, getting a crash course in sex, drugs and social mayhem.
