In primary school, Katinka de Maar’s son was considered boisterous and unfocussed. But is he, she wonders, a problem case or just a playful boy? In this personal documentary, De Maar examines the space and limitations that boys have within our current society. What is the influence of teachers and educators? Can boys still be real boys?
