Mark, Ismail and Johan are looking for Christmas trees for the annual bonfire in Amsterdam-North. Due to an accu­mu­la­tion of bad luck, misun­der­stand­ings and coin­ci­dences, they get more and more frus­trated. They feel ridiculed by an elderly woman whose tree they fancy and they are cut down to size by a group of older boys. Even more impor­tant is the fact that the three friends appear to hide secrets from each other, which puts pres­sure on their friend­ship. From inside, this social-real­istic film explains how it is possible that three ordi­nary boys, as the result of feeling under­es­ti­mated, an accu­mu­la­tion of frus­tra­tions and an exces­sive mutual loyalty, even­tu­ally commit a fatal outrage.
