Sven has sensed he had pedophilic tendencies since the beginning of puberty. After undergoing therapy, he decides to speak openly about it – a step that few dare take. As the documentary progresses, his self-imposed boundaries in regard to his contact with minors begin to shift. However, one thing remains clear: fantasies should never be acted on. Thoughts alone do not warrant punishment. Where does guilt begin, and when does society criminalize prematurely? Outing is a film that puts morality and sexual awareness to a stern test.
