Since an accident in his childhood, the 15-years-old Peter is mentally disabled. He cannot read and write, cannot go on excursion without his mother and he barely has contact to people of the same age. Especially in a phase of life where other teenagers think about their future or have first relationships, Peter is becoming aware of the fact that he is an outsider. By reading comics he flees into a fantasy world and dreams of doing something great to obtain acceptance of others â€- just like his idol “Spiderman”. But the reality is different. When Peter meets the 14-years-old Laura, in an idyllic open air pool on a summer afternoon, he tries to catch up with her clique. Even though his attempts are not successful, he is undergoing a development which is realistic as well as impressive.
