Summer in Copenhagen. A time of carefree days and wild nights for four medical students. But also a time of shattered dreams, crumbling friendships and painful love when the young men have to make a decisive step towards adulthood.

23-year-old Simon goes to medical school in Copenhagen. He parties, drinks and chases girls together with his friends Knud, Søren and Esben. But it is also a time of change between the friends and when everyone except Simon decides it’s time to sell their shared apartment this creates a growing tension within the group. Whilst the others gravitate towards the safe haven of adulthood, Simon is not ready to let go of his airy adolescent life. He becomes smitten with a bartender, Emilie, but is unable to acknowledge his growing love for her. This only sends him deeper into a world of never-ending parties, which slowly threatens to destroy his friendships.

“I will never stop feeling like a writer in my soul. But, with this particular story, I felt like I should follow through with the images and the feeling of the whole film myself. I wrote it from a very personal realm, and the script has a very small narrative in many ways, which wouldn't work if the flavour and sensibility of the scenes weren't right. So at the end of the day, I felt that the only right choice would be directing it myself.” (Rasmus Heisterberg)
