Known by everybody in his small South Tyrolean home village, the somewhat odd and sensitive Mario loves to dance. Tolerated, but with a critical eye, by his fellow villagers, his true ally is his father. When Mario bumps into his childhood friend Lenz, old memories and feelings rise to the surface. When Lenz leaves again, Mario decides to follow him to Rome. In a gay bar Mario becomes painfully aware that Lenz hasn’t necessarily been waiting for him. When armed men suddenly rush in and panic breaks out, it’s already too late: Lenz falls victim to the attack and Mario escapes unharmed. Back in South Tyrol, his life takes a drastic turn.
