Music is the only friend of a seventeen-year-old boy who withers away at his mourning mother’s villa - until he gets to know a boy from next door who particularly likes hallucinogens. Soundtrack plays striking supporting role.
When the protagonist smokes his first joint, we hear Spinvis’ song Dagen van gras . The entire soundtrack of famous songs from pop history is a key in this coming-of-age story about seventeen-year-old Ben, who withers away in his mourning mother’s shabby villa. When one day he finds an unknown boy beside his record collection in his tree house, the music quickly seals the friendship.
