X jumps first. Down in the water, he’s not allowed to change position. The goal for Y and Z is to jump as close as possible to X. The one who jumps closest to X wins the game.

Measuring their power and proving themselves is part of the boys’ everyday life. Even for the 13-year old gentle-natured Yannik. Until his best friend’s upcoming sexual curiosity suddenly puts him in a threatening situation. Where is the line between game and reality and what happens if that line is crossed?

Jonathan is in love with Julie. Unable to gather the courage to speak to Julie, Jonathan formulates a plan to steal her diary, which he believes would reveal to him the way to impress his crush. The plan includes befriending Julie’s brother Charles who is Jonathan’s classmate. Thanks to Charles, Jonathan gets an invitation to a party at their house.

The series that casts Asa Butterfield as Otis , a sweet, unassuming 16-year-old outcast whose single, free-loving sex-therapist mum Jean (Gillian Anderson!) is always embarrassing him with her lack of boundaries. After watching him give some surprisingly great sex advice to a fellow student, Otis’ rebellious crush Maeve persuades him to set up his own informal therapy practice on campus and cut her in on the profits.
