Five adoles­cents, two boys and three girls, sneak out of summer camp on a sultry evening. They steal a car and, while joyriding, end up in a forest, where a wild boar suddenly appears in their head­lights. A little later, the animal lies in front of the car, groaning with pain. Anne, the toughest and most unpre­dictable of the lot, cuts the animal’s throat to put him out of his misery. After this, the inno­cent romps and infat­u­a­tions among the five young­sters change into jeal­ousy and mutual settle­ments. The games become serious. Where first nobody dared look at the other to mask any feel­ings of affec­tion, they now look seethingly into each other’s eyes. One seals his lips, the other can do nothing but shout. But they keep suppressing what they really want to say to each other. As they will continue to do from that moment on.
