The search for our true selves takes us to unknown territories – far away from everything we believed in. The movie is the drama of the search of sexual identity of three boys in their teenage years, a story of a sensual but fatal love triangle in the Hungarian puszta. It is a real love story: it presents the intense, vibrating teenage emotions and revolting filtered by facing homosexuality. Szabolcs plays in a German football team, as does Bernard. They are roommates, best friends, inseparable. A lost match and an ugly argument make Szabolcs reconsider his life and go back to Hungary in hope of more simplicity. Yet his solitude does not last long. Soon after his arrival he meets Áron and a mutual attraction between the two boys develops when suddenly Szabolcs receives an unexpected phone call from Bernard: he has arrived in Hungary...
