“Heartbreak High is a high-octane ride into the minds and lives of a group of Australian teenagers. The discovery of a secret map that charts all the hook-ups in the school year makes its architect, AMERIE (16, rebel, loudmouth – THE HEART), an instant pariah.
In an effort to set the hypersexual students straight, the school forces them into a Sexual Literacy Program. With her new friends, outsiders, QUINNI (neuro-divergent truth bomb – THE BRAINS) and DARREN (ambitious, super-dooper gay – THE CLITORIS), Amerie must repair her reputation, whilst navigating love, sex, and heartbreak.”
Heartbreak High is a modern-day reimagined reboot of the original 1994 series of the same name, which ran for seven seasons.
Amerie is on the outskirts of the social sphere at her high school, and this only worsens as she creates a mural describing the sexual history of most of her classmates.
She breaks old relationships, makes new friends, and learns how to move forward through the pains of growing older in the short clip.
