Comedy about five adolescents from Amsterdam, made by youngsters, featuring, in a tearing rush, bizarre but also recognisable situations. Sheltering from the rain, a group of friends start telling each other tall stories. Dennis van de Molen is a Moroccan country boy who comes to Amsterdam to study. Driving a tractor full of stuff, he arrives in the city. After passing their finals, a few kids want to organise a super party there. To be admitted to the party and to impress a few potential new friends and his dream girl, Dennis is persuaded to steal a penguin from the zoo after a night of boozing. Of course, things go terribly wrong. Meanwhile, the people he has gotten to know by then in Amsterdam experience their own tall stories. Full of sex, drugs and wild parties in a humid summer free of responsibilities.
