Joris and Yad are from completely different worlds, still feelings start to bloom between them.
It has been 10 years since Joris´ father died, and he is still trying to come to terms with his father being gone when he meets Yad, who has just returned home for the summer after studying medicine in Amsterdam. Even though they are very different, they fall for each other and end up wanting to be more than «just friends», but they both have problems with their mothers that threatens their relationship.
