Program: Kurzspielfilmprogramm 2

For Kevin, a shy teenager, being bullied is part of everyday life. But one day an older guy, Benny, comes to his aid. Impressed by Benny’s selfassured appearance, Kevin seeks his company from then on, and increasingly idolizes him. But Benny’s intention is not to protect the younger boy, quite the contrary. Naïve Kevin fits the bill for his purposes.
