Abandoned at their late grandfather’s house for the summer, teenage brothers Zak and Seth are left to their own devices. With the endless possibilities of summer fun and adventure to be had in the idyllic Belgian countryside, they feel the world is their oyster. But when money runs short and with no help in sight, the boys scheme to support themselves by renting their deceased grandfather’s house to a local drug dealer, but things don’t go exactly as planned.

A lovely, sportive, bucolic film, turns Belgium into an annexe of Huck Finn country.” (Nigel Andrews – Financial Times)
