    • Synopsis
    • 13-year-old Bart is a sensitive and religious boy who wants to do as many good deeds as he possibly can. Quite unexpectedly he falls head-over-heels in love with the sophisticated and highly-seductive 16 year-old, Moniek. Despite his parents’ disapproval, Bart secretly starts seeing Moniek and from that moment on, terrible things start to happen. Bart is convinced that this is because he is more occupied with Moniek than with doing good deeds. He has to choose between his love for Moniek; which could tempt fate even further, or deny his feelings and return to the path of righteousness.
