A family holiday in Brittany. Since the death of his father, Anton has withdrawn from his mother, and from her new lover too. A hopedfor new closeness seems impossible – the 17 year old has felt like an outsider from the very beginning. It is not until he meets charismatic David and attractive Katja that the holiday takes a more promising turn, although not without consequences. The languorous urges of sexual awakening and subtle seduction is mixed with alienating violence, as things get out of control.
