Description Michael, a soldier in the Austrian military, has been on border duty at the Austrian-Hungarian border for seven weeks now. Isolated from his family and friends and stuck in an uber-masculine environment, Michael develops homosexual feelings for his comrade Raphael. Being bullied is part of his daily routine. Jürgen, the alpha male in the group, has found the perfect victim in Michael. During taking a shower Jürgen bullies Michael once more but this time something is different, Michael bring about Jürgen's downfall both literally and figuratively. The game is on and Jürgen uses his most powerful weapon - his knowledge about Michael's secret. Jürgen punches Michael on the back of his head causing him an injury. Korcak, their group commander, suspects that there is more behind Michael's injury than he Michael is willing to tell but can't help him if he does not tell the truth. A couple of hours later, Michael and Raphael smoke a joint together at the border to celebrate their last night. Being intoxicated, Raphael opens up about his emotions which seems to be the perfect situation for Michael to open up as well and so he takes a chance and wants to kiss Raphael, who, being irritated, pushes Michael away with the words "I'am not gay Michel!". His only hope just died and a downwards spiral begins where Michael's only solution seems to be suicide. It's Raphael who now has to prevent this from happening.

    The background music sounds very suitable for a tribetwelve / marblehornets / everymanhybrid trailer :D it has that eery scary horrror feeling that it gives uuuh xD Also I saw the movie, it was really great, idk but I think maybe they should show it at schools for teaching against homophobia, but maybe only for the older kids. Just a thought :D Random bob :3 O/ || /\
