Six teenagers are locked in their school building as a typhoon approaches. Without any adults around them, they begin to discover their own sexuality and interest in the opposite sex. When the storm moves closer, the claustrophobic setting causes a dramatic chain of events full of affection, rivalry and violence, ultimately reaching a tragic climax. TYPHOON CLUB tells a shattering, yet beautifully photographed story about young people experiencing their adolescence.
