Young teenager Pim (Jelle Florizoone) has a romantic fling with one of his childhood friends, Gino (Mathias Vergels), but their relationship falls apart when Gino finds a girlfriend… This depiction of teenage gay love deals with all its consequences, from living in a world where everybody assumes that you are straight to all the emotional drama that comes with being a teenager. Florizoone is young but very good as the kid who’s looking for love just as much as his immature mother. Grass and the sand of a beach moving in the wind turn into symbols of freedom, but the thin script is the film’s weakest part.
