Synopsis: Germany in the 70's. Léopold, in his fifties, seduces Franz, a 19 years old boy. Franz falls in love and moves to Leopold's. But one day comes a foolish thing without importance on which they cannot agree with, a kind of divergence. But from that moment, there isn't "mutual us" anymore but only divergences.
