Emil and Adam are two guys in their 20's. They are close friends, and after a night at the movies Emil is going to sleep over at Adam's. Emil has unspoken feelings for Adam – feelings that are tested when they are sleeping in the same double bed. A film about friendship and the longing for something more.
