Ulrik Weck, Denmark, 2001

DK/Short fiction

The film trails a group of boys, who live in one of Copenhagen's suburbs. It's summer vacation and dreariness starts to show. They spend their days smoking hash and challenging each other to homespun Competitions, to rid themselves of boredom, seeing that the town they live in has nothing to offer.
