Synopsis

Jonas, 16, is doing badly at school but plans to stake everything on tennis. However, he just fails to make the national selection. He then meets Pierre, a man in his thirties, who is moved by his situation and takes him under his wing. On the strength of this special bond, Jonas drops out of school. Incapable of setting limits on their relationship, his education gradually begins to exceed the purely scholastic framework.
