    • Synopsis
    • 1:54 is a psychological thriller about a high school student who is pushed to the edge because of the pressure he endures and where human limits reach the point of no return. At the age of 16, Tim is an intelligent but shy young man gifted with a natural athletic ability for running. However, the last four years have been tough on him because of Jeff and his crew. In his last year of high school, Tim is sick and tired of feeling like a loser, and wants to shine for once. He decides to stand up to Jeff by dethroning him in the 800 m championship, the event Jeff is known for in school.
      But behind the competition and rivalry, a secret is wreaking havoc. To Pierre, his father, who is trying to understand what’s going on, and to Mr. Sullivan, his running coach, who tries to help him, Tim says, “There are only two ways to solve your problems. Either you shut up and do absolutely nothing. Or you shut up and take care of it yourself. I choose option two.”
