Portrait of a group of teenagers from youth carnival club De Dwarsliggers. For the first time, the youngsters participate in the Big Parade with a float. For six months, while coming of age, they prepare their 27-foot tall float. An immense job, which can only be done by beavering away and collaborating well. As the deadline approaches, pressure increases. The group dynamics and interviews prove that the friends’ ambitions are rather dissimilar.
