Eight-year-old Max is constantly harassed by his older brother and his brother’s friend as they go on a treasure hunt in the forest. At a small lake, the children try their luck fishing with magnets and unearth all kinds of rusty objects. Here, too, Max is a fifth wheel in this group of three. The group dynamic suddenly changes, however, when the children pull an old artillery shell out of the water.
