The distance from the nearest star to Earth is one hundred and fifty million kilometres. The journey to another human being seems to be the same distance. On the surface, this is a film about pressure developing inside a young person's mind and what it drives him to do, illustrated by a scene in which we see Henri, a home-schooled boy, the night before an important exam. The scene shows how the pressures of soul and mind can affect the body and how it shows. The 14-year-old protagonist is in a stage of his life that will very much define his attitudes towards the world and other people. On a deeper level, this is a portrayal of the development that eventually takes place in every human being.
