    The vicissitudes and adventures of a group of youngsters, left to themselves while an apparently placid and sleepy life flows undisturbed. At the mercy of the demons of growing up, of their fantasies and arrogance, like flies that hover from the rot to the silk, this group of boys will drag themselves towards a tragic and irreparable epilogue.
