Synopsis


Sixteen-year-old Hendrix is fed up - of his mother's preaching about her virtuous organic lifestyle, of her new, much younger Australian girlfriend, and of the school bullies and their relentless mockery.


In a desperate attempt to prove his masculinity, he ventures into a brothel above a local fried chicken shop - and gets more than he bargained for.
