Runt 2021 DVD Cover – Summary
Runt 2021 DVD Cover. Neglected and unsupervised, a group of high school seniors is pulled into a downward cycle of violence.
In RUNT, Cal (the late Cameron Boyce) is harassed and abused by a group of bullies at his high school. When one of the bullies believes that Cal has a crush on his girlfriend, the torment escalates.
The adults in Cal’s life, including his parents and teachers, are either absent or incompetent. At first, Cal tries to ignore the bullying, believing that disclosing the situation to any of these adults would only make matters worse. Then, when the bullies confront Cal at a party, shove him in the trunk of a car, and sexually assault his friend Cecily (Nicole Elizabeth Berger), Cal decides to retaliate.
Cal and the bullies proceed to engage in a series of one-upping, with each form of retaliation darker and more violent than the last. Cal must ask himself, what does it mean to win this war if the price is his own morality?
