After his mother’s death, the fifteen-year-old, rather restrained Sieger lives with his caring father and tough brother who are at constant odds with each other. With his best friend Stef, he trains with a new track and field team for the national relay championships. One of the team members is the intriguing and unpredictable Marc. Sieger is overwhelmed by a deep crush on his team member. When the infatuation turns out to be mutual, he gets wrapped up in a struggle he does not dare to talk about at home. A summery youth film about following your heart.
