SYNOPSIS

Benji tells us the story of the beginning and the tragic ending of his friendship with Nino. The contrast between what is narrated and what is seen questions the memories of important events in our lives. Benji’s first sexual experience brings out his latent sadistic nature to which he never admits he has. He justifies the murder of his best and only friend through the lessons his mother taught him.
