Synopsis:
November 1989. The Berlin wall collapses. In Stavanger town, Jarle Klepp (17) has no idea that everyting is about to change. So far he has got everything; the best girlfriend in the world, and the world´s coolest buddy. Together they will soon launch Stavanger´s toughest punk band, "Mattias Rust Band". But then the new boy in class, Yngve, appears. He is not like anyone else, and Jarle is confused. He does not know what to do. All he knows is that he cannot stop meeting Yngve, even if it involves doing things he really hates, like listening to Duran Duran and playing tennis. Slowly but steadily Jarle lets everyone around him down, and finds out what it means to stand alone.
