Christian is 12 years old. He and his best friend, Jesper, have been invited over to Janus, an older boy from school. From the moment the boys enter Janus' house, Christian feels as if he is entering a mysterious world. In the cellar, Janus reveals a boa constrictor. He lowers the snake into a maze of comic books and lets loose a rat between the books. Christian and Jesper thumb through a stack of pornographic magazines while waiting for the rat to be eaten. Christian disappears into an erotic novella and doesn't realize what is happening, until the snake strikes the helpless rat. Shocked, he flees upstairs, where another encounter awaits. For Christian everything becomes overwhelming as well as an essential step towards puberty.
