One short summer of anarchy in Copenhagen: medical student Simon shares a flat with his best friends and spends his time partying with them and two other students. When they wake up in the morning, they carry on where they left off. But the nearer the end of summer comes, the more doubt and tension creep into their programme of eternal adolescence. The friends want to sell their flats and are on the threshold to adulthood. Simon on the other hand wants to stay with the programme. Friendships are on the brink of destruction. With great energy and pace, the film portrays a window of freedom that is slowly closing.
