Synopsis

Drama, set in the outskirts of Rotterdam harbour. A group of sexually-charged Dutch teenagers, who have a passion in common for motorcycle racing, encounter a series of dramatic events in their lives. Rien is paralyzed after a crash, and his consequent impotence will be the cause of his suicide, while over-sexed Maja turns to religion. Eef, a homophobe who beats up gays and then blackmails them, gets his comeuppance when he's sexually assaulted by several men and he ends up liking it and this unveils his hidden homosexual tendencies. Fientje, the group's nymphomaniac, spends her time sleeping her way to the top of the fast-food business, but eventually, she finds happiness with Hans, whose racing days are fading.
