Even during his trip to Holland with his best friends Jan and Marcel, Leopold can think about nothing but his ex-boyfriend Lukas. Restless and lonely he wonders through the night, not knowing that his quick stop at a metro station will come at a high price.
While Jan struggles to cope with what he saw the night before, Marcel is trying to escape their painful reality with drugs. Oma Margarethe, who watches over Leopold, comforts Lukas who sees his ex-boyfriend for the first time laying in a coma.
Not available for his friends, Marcel bumps into 18-year-old Felix, while running from reality. Felix's fear of being HIV positive gives Marcel another excuse not to face Leopold's fate by dealing with a stranger's problems.

Marcel's escape from reality comes to an abrupt ending when Felix convinces him to visit his best friend at the hospital and confront his fears. Together with Lukas and Jan by his side he actually manages to step inside Leopold's room and overcome his fear.
