Sula and Ja

Synopsis

Socially awkward and from the wrong side of the tracks, all Sula wants is to finish her time at the elite St. Matthew’s school with good grades and without being noticed. But everything changes when she is paired with Ja, the darling of the school, as a lab partner.

Ja is all too aware of how little he has in common with the brilliant but sullen Sula. When he is prodded by his friends into asking Sula to the school dance – a joke that she does not take too kindly – he decides to follow through… if Sula would have him.

Follow the exciting story of Sula and Ja, two teens from different worlds, as they forge an unlikely friendship that will see them through self-discovery, family tensions and a loved one in jeopardy, and perhaps evolve into something more.
