EN - The empty streets of a boring Belgian suburb during a hot summer holiday. Noels, a 32-year-old man, just moved back in with his mother. While she is on holiday, he must take care of his grandmother who suffers from dementia and his 16-year-old brother Jannes. Although the two brothers don't appear to get along, they soon discover they have more in common than they thought.

FR - Une monotone banlieue belge lors d'une vague de chaleur. A 32 ans, Noels vient juste d'emménager à nouveau chez sa mère. Pendant que celle-ci est en vacances, il est chargé de s'occuper de sa grand-mère atteinte de démence, ainsi que de Jannes, son jeune frère de 16 ans.
