Simon (23) goes to medical school with his best friend Knud (23) with whom he also shares an apartment. It’s summer in Copenhagen; a time of endless days and carefree nights together with Søren and Esben, the last two friends in the group. The four boys party and drink and chase girls and wake up the next morning only to do whole thing all over again. But it is also a time of change between the friends and when everyone, except Simon, wants to sell their shared apartment, it creates a growing tension within the group. Simon is not ready to quit the happy-go-lucky days of no responsibility while the others are steadily gravitating towards the safe haven of adulthood.
