It is the story of the friendship of three young school students that leads to disaster, and the search of a father for the reasons behind his son’s suicide. He eventually has to accept that the dead boy was not just a victim, but a perpetrator, too. Unfathomable, painful scenes of boys who are immune to the suffering of others.
