Popular youth film, adapted from Carry Slee’s story about Sven and Roos­marijn, who both have serious prob­lems, at home and at school.

Life is not easy for Sven. At home, his dipso­ma­ni­acal father abuses him, but he can’t talk about it with anyone, not even with his brother, who is loved by their father. Sven is making a film, with a leading role for Roos­marijn, a girl he is in love with and who has her own prob­lems. She is sexu­ally intim­i­dated by math­e­matics teacher Bob, but when she wants to talk about it, nobody believes her. The two strike up a friend­ship, but this is seri­ously tested due to external factors. The story is inter­woven with spec­tac­ular images of free running, the hobby of Sven’s friends. The film is based on Carry Slee’s bestseller.
