X jumps first. Down in the water, he's not allowed to change position. The goal for Y and Z is to jump as close as possible to X. The one who jumps closest to X wins the game. Measuring their power and proving themselves is part of the boys' everyday life. Even for gentle-natured 13-year old Yannik. Until his best friend's arising sexual curiosity suddenly puts him in a threatening situation. Where is the line between game and reality, and what happens if that line is crossed?
