Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2014


Sieger, a sporty fifteen-year-old boy, lives with his older brother Eddie and their father Theo. During the summer holidays, Sieger is training in his athletics team for the national relay championships and meets the intriguing and unpredictable Marc, a new member of the team. The friendship that develops seems nothing out of the ordinary, but Sieger secretly harbours strong feelings for Marc. He engages in a lonely struggle with himself when it emerges that Marc is also in love with him. Meanwhile, Sieger tries to make peace between his father and his brother, who often clash since the two brothers' mother is dead; but Sieger’s mind is elsewhere, as he finds it increasingly difficult to deny his feelings for Marc.
