    • Synopsis
    • A boy and girl meet at a custody centre for problematic youths. The boy has come to serve his obligatory civil service. The girl is one of the youths in custody, and she is constantly in trouble, a fire inside her, a lust for life that can't be quashed, or controlled. The boy becomes infatuated with the girl. He is a quiet one, a stutterer. But there is a fire inside him as well. Rules, laws, punishment; the shackles of the hostile environment with no understanding around them can be broken! They steal a car and flee together. Thus begins a journey with endless escapes.
