Staying seven minutes inside a closet for the teen game 7 minutes in heaven makes two mavericks realise there is only one way out - by literally coming out of the closet as themselves.

Thijs and Diana are the outsiders of their class. They even don’t like each other, ironically enough for the same reason. During a class party, they take part in the teenagers’ game 7 minutes in heaven and are locked in a wall cabinet together. Initially, they just want to leave the cramped space as soon as possible. But at some point during those seven minutes, something substantial changes - so they can leave the closet as themselves.
