Wolf (20) and Alexander (21) live in the boxing village of the Netherlands, where every Sunday bouts are organised on a cruising boxing boat. Now, the two best friends have to go head-to-head in the ring...
Wolf, a boy looking for his place in the world, has been secretly in love with Alexander for years. There is no place for his artistic streak in the village, famous for its boxing bouts, and as a result of his growing desire for another world the fight against his friend provokes strong feelings in him. Alexander also has feelings for Wolf, but his pragmatic nature causes him to ride the flow of the fighting culture in the village.
