JUST FRIENDS

(Gewoon Vrienden)

by Ellen Smit

​The Netherlands 2018, 78 min.

When two different worlds collide, a defiant love erupts

On the 10th anniversary of his dad’s death, Joris still tries to come to terms with his father’s absence when he meets the free-spirited Yad, who returns back home to his family after living on his own. Although very different, there is an instant spark between the two and they want to be more than “just friends”, but both have issues with their mothers that threaten to jeopardize their relationship. ​
