Addi, a boy raised by a clairvoyant mother, decides to take a bullied boy, Balli, into his gang of outsiders. Left to their own devices, the boys explore aggression and violence, but also learn about loyalty and love. As their behaviour escalates, Addi begins to experience a series of dreamlike visions. Can his newfound intuition guide him and his friends back to a safer path, or will they dive into further violence?
