From the time Anders is 6 years old, he is sexually exploited by the 13-year-old boy, Peter. No one notices and neither of the two boys say anything to anyone. Today, both are adult men, and Anders wants to confront Peter with what happened in their childhood. Still, he agrees to try – both for Anders’ sake and his own. It turns into a poignant journey, driven by honesty, illustrating how guilt and shame are nourished by silence and can cast long shadows into adulthood. But also, that there is hope and light to be found in defying the pain and breaking the silence.
