synopsis

Wolf is a lonely, silent, sixteen-year-old boy. He tries to hide his emotions, but sometimes he is overwhelmed by the smell of a girl’s hair, or when trying to peek under Clara’s short skirt — the 20-year-old who visits her boyfriend who lives upstairs. Wolf lives with his younger brother and his mother. He doesn’t have a father, he just has a few things of his that remind Wolf of his father’s death, and Wolf tries to avoid them. The burden of watching over his family has fallen to him, but his mother has a boyfriend who Wolf can’t stand, and his brother is a member of a juvenile gang of thieves.
One day, Wolf sees his brother accidentally kill an old woman. His life and perception of things is radically changed, his relationship with Clara takes a new turn, the dead woman begins to haunt him, and his absent father literally comes back to life and joins the family again. Following these events, Wolf accepts the dead ones into his life, and is now able to fully share his love with Clara.
