Simon arrives in the tiny town of Vesterby with his doctor parents. He’s the perfect outsider from Copenhagen, and immediately gets caught up in classmate Bjarke’s more exotic life as the son of the only rich guy in town. For a school project, the boys film their lazy hash-dazed days, which quickly reveals cracks in the town’s polished surface as well as in Bjarke’s mental state. DJ and music producer Skovbjerg delivers a razor-sharp portrait of two friends’ farewell to childhood.
