Klemen is a 15-year-old boy living with his older brother Peter and single mother in a small town deep in the countryside. His familiar daily life, which Klemen loves to spend with his beloved brother at a tennis court or by the nearby river, is shaken up by Peter’s sudden passionate romance with a pretty girl named Sonja. This leaves Klemen overwhelmed by a rush of conflicting emotions.
