The film tells the story of an adolescent who flees the reality of school and a squalid family life by immersing himself in the magical world of Titans and Giants.

The Kenyan film 'Friend' by Wanuri Kahiu is a surprising film in the +16 section presented on the same day. The section is marked by special attention to issues related to women and the film deals with the theme of female homosexuality in a country where it is against the law.
