14-year-old Thomas has just moved to Copenhagen with his mom. Thomas likes to draw, it’s a way for him to escape from the pressure around him. In school he meets Mads and Emma. Mads likes Thomas’ drawings, whereas Emma is romantically interested in Thomas and invites him home with her. Just before leaving, Thomas meets Emmas older brother, a young, emerging artist. The meeting changes something within him. Rumors start circulating about Emma and Thomas - and he doesn’t deny them. Thomas can’t understand his feelings, how to act in the new school or control the lies, he has created to be popular.
