The main character is a young boy who spends holiday on camp organized for  people with Down syndrome. Camera follows the conversations of Daniel and his friends. Boys, as boys – they talk about girls. Absolutely seriously. They ask themselves about: “What being close gives you?” or “What is the right way to express love?” Searching for answers is not just an issue for teenagers, but a problem that everyone has.
