PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2013.

In this rural coming-of-age story, Zoli, an adolescent boy, who has been grown up in an orphanage, falls in love with his classmate Juli. He is trying to get close to the girl with a wild, obscene and grotesque way of behavior, he acts amazingly confidently but deep inside he is an unstable boy, struggling to build his self-esteem. Although Juli is touched by the boy`s direct sexual advances, she wants to be more persuaded. Zoli doesn`t understand the rules of this game of love, such knowledge has never been taught him. With his more and more uncontrollable behavior he scares Juli who stops all communication with him. To prove his devotion, Zoli cuts his veins open on his arm but Juli turns away with disgust. Left alone, from the sharp physical pain tears roll down Zoli’s face, giving him a sigh with relief after a long time.
