Simi is fragile and insecure and is keen to lose his virginity as a way of ‘solving’ his anguish. Encouraged by a bad friend, he and Tamara, who is very drunk, decide to have sex at her place the next day. This sets off a chain of events that will prove to be difficult to stop. An impressive film about shame, mental health, the media, abuse, reconciliation, second chances, consent and new friends.
