It’s 1976 and in a small Danish town, the air is pregnant with music and racing hormones. Martin (14) is on the eve of his first communion. In the middle of this already turbulent time, Martin’s mother suddenly dies. With an over-emotional brother and a completely devastated father, Martin basically faces it all on his own. No wonder that Martin throws himself into his friends, his possible girlfriend and speed walking.
