Synopsis Zak and Seth are two brothers aged 13 and 15, respectively. When we see them, they are spending the summer in a countryside house that belonged to their deceased grandfather, and it begins to be clear that their mother who left them there has no intention of returning for them in the near future. Soon they run out of money and are forced to steal food from their neighbour's basement. While on a ride in their grandfather’s old car, they meet Dany, who immediately joins them, since he is also always harassed by his brother. The three adolescents protect one another dodging the vicissitudes of survival, but also having a good time, in an adultless and free world: a continuous party. Unfortunately, things get increasingly complicated when they decide to rent their grandfather’s house to a local drug peddler in exchange for some money, an apparently good deal, which will entail severe unexpected consequences and will force them to sink deeper and deeper into unchartered waters.
