David, 15, is a teenager like any other. His world is filled with loud music, imaginary encounters with centre-folds, and heroic fights on make-believe battlefields. With his mother away, and his father nowhere to be found, David is forced to stay on his uncle`s farm, where life lacks the excitement he craves.
But the monotony of country living is about to be broken as his uncle and a collection of his male friends get together for an afternoon of excessive eating and drinking, to which David is invited. Later that evening, David goes to meet a friend in the woods. Here, the effects of his drunk-fuelled initiation and of the frustration he feels generally find a brutal and horrifying outlet that will change his life forever...
A powerful and exquisite study of one boy`s journey into the treacherous terrain of manhood, this startling film from the Wunderkind of modern French cinema is pure cinematic poetry.
