Fifteen-year-old Klemen lives with his mother and elder brother Peter in a small rural town. Klemen loves his brother and spends most of his free time hanging out with him. When Peter falls in love with beautiful Sonja, their passionate relationship causes a whirlwind of conflicting emotions for Klemen. Angry at Sonja for pulling Peter away from him, Klemen also cannot resist the attraction he feels for her. Confused by his feelings, he starts behaving erratically. The ZFF screening of this intimate coming-of-age story of jealousy and the inevitability of change is also the film’s Croatian premiere.
