A seemingly innocent chronicle of first love experienced in the course of a Belgian family’s
beach holiday in Spain switches into a tense darkening mode when 16-year-old Benjamin
comes under the spell of sly-eyed Anne, the sexually experienced vixen whose parents
own the nearby convenience store. When Anne tearfully confides to her awkward new
lover that she’s been raped by a local man, Benjamin stands ready to avenge her honor in
the course of a night’s harrowing journey in a stolen car. But is Anne telling the truth? In
Flemish with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)
