Digital presentation - Pim lives with his ex-beauty queen, single mother in a small town on the Belgian coast. Introverted, he spends his childhood drawing and dreaming up fantasy lives while keeping his emerging desires a secret. As a teenager, he grows infatuated with his older neighbor and motorcycling hero, Gino. But his first love seems likely to end in disappointment. Meanwhile, his mother Yvette (Eva Van Der Gucht, Everybody Famous) longs to leave everything behind and see the world. Their two dreams collide when a handsome man arrives in town and becomes their new lodger.
