CGiii Comment

When boys wrestle, when boys take baths together, when boys kiss...when boys are friends.

It's all perfectly normal.

And then, it can turn really ugly once a girl is involved.

A declaration of love or just a really sick kid?

Powerful stuff.


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

Two sixteen year old boys, Marcos and Johannes, spend their days racing, wrestling, hanging out, watching videos and playing hide-and-seek at nights. A closeness develops between the two of them, which soon starts to become a calamity to their friendship.
