Having been abandoned by his parents to an ailing uncle (Creed Bratton), Terri, is mercilessly teased by his peers and garners even more unwanted attention from school authorities by coming to school still wearing pajamas -- when he decides to show up at all. Resigned to his outsider status, Terri is surprised when his tough- talking vice principal, Mr. Fitzgerald, takes an interest in him. Although his efforts are sometimes clumsy and occasionally dubiously professional, he genuinely wants to help him through this tough time. Under Fitzgerald's tutelage, Terri befriends a pair of fellow misfits, Chad (Bridger Zadina), an edgy loner whose rebellion masks his own insecurities, and Heather (Olivia Crocicchia), a sexually precocious girl whose beauty proves to be a trap of its own. The three teenagers, so different on the surface, but all outcasts in the unforgiving high school hierarchy, find an unexpected, imperfect bond that reflects the tenuousness, poignancy and pathos of the adolescent experience.
Deftly combining authentic and candid elements with wry humor and compassion, Jacobs tells Terri's story with delicacy and complex emotionality, as the young man learns to reach outside his insular world. A film about the courage it takes to build relationships and the rewards of taking that sometimes terrifying leap, TERRI is for anyone who ever felt alone or misunderstood in high school. In other words, all of us.
