Christian was 14-years-old, when he undramatically told his family and classmates that he is gay. Now, as a 16-year-old he enters ‘boarding school' and will have to say goodbye to his old and safe life where everyone knows him. Christian has always had lots of female friends and has never been truly in love - so imagine him getting a boyfriend at the 'boarding school’.
Christian is very nervous about school startt - especially seeing as he has to share a room with two other boys. Will he fit in? The ‘boarding school’, however, has room for everyone, and he quickly discovers that the sense of community among both boys and girls encourages him to be exactly who he is.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
