NB: TICKETING HANDLED BY RESPECTIVE VENUES

A delicate coming of age drama

Damien is the pampered teenage son of a soldier and a doctor. He lives with his mother in Army barracks in the south of France while his father is on a military mission in the Central African Republic. Damien shows a new, defiant side of himself in high school in order to stave off the bullies who taunt him over his effeminate ways: a friend of his father’s is teaching him to wrestle.

When he meets Tom, the adopted son of local farmers, the hatred between the two boys is immediate and visceral. But when Tom’s mother is forced to go to the hospital, Damien’s mother quite naturally offers to take Tom into their home for a short while. The tension between the two boys becomes more and more palpable…
