Norwegian director Marius Holst's coming-of-age tale skillfully blends mystery and drama. When the best chum of quiet, naive teen Otto Olsen (Martin Dahl Garfalk) heads off for summer vacation, Otto forges a quick friendship with Frank (Jan Devo Kornstad), a charismatic older boy. Unfortunately, Frank's influence is a catalyst for mischief, and soon a rock-throwing incident at a soccer match morphs into a crime spree in this arresting film.
