Clovis is beginning his last year of high school and really doesn’t know how he’ll survive it. Ever since Fanny got back from China, his life has been upside down. Still in a relationship with Gabrielle, our hero just doesn’t know what to do anymore. Clovis would like to have a survival guide to help him see a way out. Since there isn’t a guide, he’s decided to create one so that his baby brother will have something he can count on 13 years from now. It’s why he’s decided to make a documentary of his last year of high school and why the ‘How to Survive Secondary Five’ guide got started.

During this pivotal year, Clovis discovers how to survive his love life, his graduation photo, his parents, the parties that go wrong, the prom, and, especially, himself. He realizes that he is often the architect of his own misfortunes. Clovis completes his long documentary for Philou by making a declaration to his family. He got everything wrong! He’s wondered for years how to survive his family, but the last year has made him realize that he’s surviving BECAUSE of his family.
