A film by Philippe DE PIERPONT
2016 – Belgium – Drama – 86'
SYNOPSIS This is the story of two childhood friends – Lucas (a 16 years old high-schooler) and Bert (a 18 years old mechanic’s apprentice) - who flee the suffocating fish bowl that their killjoy families’ lives have become. Lucas, still quite immature, finds a “big brother” in Bert, a guide who is going to take him straight to the brink of catastrophe. Their escape leads them to vacant houses whose occupants have left on vacation. But very quickly, boredom resurfaces and the freewheeling sense of being on an adventure evades them. Should they return to the fold, or keep moving on? Their drifting logic compels them to blindly forge ahead.
