47 min.DK/Short fictionYouth films

15-year-old Kristian is new in his class. He wants to make friends with the trendsetters, but is taken into a different world when he meets Henrik from a parallel class. He is a more mature boy who seems far more open, exciting and attractive to Kristian. But Patrick, who is the dominant boy in Kristian's class, hates Henrik. Uncertain and without thinking about it, Kristian starts to make a strategy for his behaviour. What will be worth doing, how can he please everybody? Where does he belong?

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.
