I Am the Cheese

Director Robert Jiras's adaptation of a Robert Cormier novel centers on lonely teenager Adam Farmer (Robert MacNaughton), a troubled young man who's convinced that a secret buried deep in his subconscious mind will help solve the mystery of his parents' disappearance. An emotional quest told through fragments and flashbacks, Adam's search for the truth calls into question the boy's past, present and future -- and his very identity.
