Set within the framework of a police investigation, As You Are is a tale of confused adolescence and yearning in '90s upstate New York. Jack (Owen Campbell, "The Americans") is a loner who keeps to himself—never fitting in and never really wanting to—-spending his time skateboarding down the streets of his neighborhood. When his mom (Mary Stuart Masterson, Fried Green Tomatoes) begins dating Tom (Scott Cohen, "Gilmore Girls"), an ex-military security guard, Jack is forced into a friendship with his son, charismatic and rebellious Mark (Charlie Heaton), and they eventually all move in together. Sarah (Amandla Stenberg, The Hunger Games) joins the mix when she gets in the middle of a squabble between the boys and some bullies at a local diner, and the three become instantly inseparable, spending their days skipping school, getting stoned, listening to music, and pretending to ignore the sexual tension building around them. However, the increasingly controlling and violent behavior of Mark's dad soon threatens the group's comfortable friendship, and complications give way to tragedy. The relationship among the three and the mysterious events that led up to one fateful day in the woods are pieced together through interrogation videos and flashbacks in a self-assured directorial debut by 23-year-old Miles Joris-Peyrafitte.
