For the first time in Germany: the Dutch film adaptation of the dystopian science fiction BOY 7. Sam comes to in a subway, not knowing neither how he got there, nor what his name is. Along with Lara, who seems to share Sam’s mysterious fate, he goes in search of his identity. In a notebook that a stranger slips to him, he discovers his own sketches and realizes that he and Lara are in mortal danger. Confronted with a manipulative and cruel regime that robs teenagers of their freedom and personhood, makes them into cold-hearted warriors, and ultimately sacrifices them, hope, humanity, and love seem prove to be the only effective weapons.
