Danmien (Kacey Mottet Klein) je tinejdžer koji živi sa svojom majkom Marianne (Kiberlain) na jugu Francuske u jednoj dolini okruženoj planinama. Njegov otac je vojni pilot, oficir francuske vojske i radi pri misiji u Centralno Afričkoj Republici. Pomalo razmažem, prepotentan i svojeglav sukobljava se sa ćutljivim Thomasom (Corentin Fila) koji u školi putuje preko tri sata sa farme smještene u planinskim vrletima iznad grada. Tomas je tamnoputi usvojeni sin farmera koji ga brižljivo čuvaju i uče kako se živi u surovim uslovima često  negostoljubive planine. Želi da jednog dana postane veterinar.
Damienova majka upoznaje Tomasa i njegovu porodicu kada dobije poziv za liječničku pomoć Tomasovoj majci koja je ostala u drugom stanju.

Netrpeljivost između Damiena i Tomasa dostiže kulminaciju kada Tomas bude pozvan od strane Damienovog oca da boravi kod njih u kući dok njegova majka bude ležala u bolnici.
Njih dvojica našli su se u situaciji da žive pod istim krovom, ne poznajući jedan drugoga dovoljno da bi mogli postati prijatelji. Prikrivena Damienova zaljubljenost u Tomasa polako izbija na vidjelo.

Ovu lijepu ljubavnu romansu pretočenu u filmsku priču režirao je André Téchiné koji za ovaj film dobio mnogobrojne nagrade između ostalih i Zlatnog medvjeda na Berlinskom festivalu.

Uz ovaj film nemam neku priču koju bih vam napisao. Naprosto previše je godina prošlo od onih starij tinejdžerskih ljubavi, ali mislim da ni ove rane 50-te godine nisu ništa manje strasne, niti manje emotivnije. Jedino su emocije zrelije i postojanije.

André Téchiné’s engrossing and original drama of teenage male turmoil is enriched immeasurably by its assured inclusion of female perspective, thanks to a script co-written by Céline Sciamma (Girlhood, NZIFF15) and an inspired performance from Sandrine Kiberlain. In her most substantial role in years, Kiberlain plays a mother who unwittingly comes between her son (a mercurial Kacey Mottet Klein) and the classmate who embodies everything he thinks he loathes.

High in the spectacular Pyrenees, Marianne (Kiberlain), the local doctor, is called out to an isolated farm to tend to an ailing woman. She takes an instant liking to Thomas (Corentin Fila), her patient’s adopted son, a handsome young North African whose easy masculine competence impresses her. When the boy’s mother is admitted to hospital, Marianne invites Thomas to stay in town, near the hospital, with her and her son, his tauntingly brainy classmate Damien. She’s unaware of the longstanding antagonism between the two. Soon she is confronting the most outrageous flare-ups, and trying to unpick the insecurities that fuel their passionate hostility.

“As a portrait of adolescents wrestling with unfamiliar emotions, this is an uncommonly moving teen film, conveying with great restraint the boys’ loneliness, fear, longing and magnetic attraction in moments so tender and private you almost feel like an intruder… Kiberlain manages the tricky feat of making the perfect mother unquestionably real and relatable. Her performance can’t be over-praised.” — David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

Damien lives with his mother Marianne, a doctor, while his father is on a tour of duty abroad. He is bullied by Thomas, whose mother is ill. The boys find themselves living together when Marianne invites Thomas to come and stay with them.
