Based on literary partners Elvis Peeters’ controversial novel, this raw portrait of a generation shows the moral degeneration of a group of bored teens in a sleepy Belgian border village.
On the edge of a Belgian border village, a group of teens looks for adventure one languorous summer. Using an isolated shed as their clubhouse, the rebellious adolescents try to dispel boredom. This starts with harmless, almost idyllic sex games, but eventually degenerates into a grim situation and actions that are irreversible. The group dynamic leads to fatal consequences in this poignant adaptation of the eponymous novel.
