Roman and Maru, two troubled teenagers, attempt an impossible rebellion against the adult world. Maru, a 15-year-old loner, meets Roman, the reckless son of a corrupt right wing politician. United by their desire to fight the inertia that they feel surrounding them, the two embark on a revolt against everything and everyone when they decide to run away to a place where they are free of other peoples expectations. This leads them to an accidental new intimacy and the discovery of their sexuality, a bond that both unites and confuses them. Despite the risk of getting caught by the police and their parents, the young fugitives jeopardize the security of their hiding place and seek to expand the limits of their paradise. But this will mean a return to reality, where wounds are genuine and actions have consequences.
