Synopsis

It's the last summer in Falkenberg. Five childhood friends who have become young men. David who yearns to be a child again and Holger who never wants to move away. Two best friends that escape to the forest and to the ocean, away from the future. Jesper constantly returns home without anybody really noticing that he's been gone. Jorgen finances his catering company by burglarizing houses. And John, always in a bad mood, yet believes that bacon makes him happy. The future looms at the horizon, but all of them won't be there to see it.
