Brylcream Boulevard is the second in Belgian filmmaker Robbe De Hert's uncompleted "Belgian Graffiti" trilogy. The first installment, Blueberry Hill was set in the mid '50s and chronicled the lives and adventures of a group of high school students. This episode begins five years later in the early '60s and looks at how adulthood has changed them. Robin De Hert, the former rebel returns home after a stint in the Navy and discovers his old nemesis Mr. Verbiest, the crooked teacher he oust, has become a corrupt politician. This particularly galls Robin, who still blames Verbiest for the death of his best friend in high school. Enlisting the aid of his ex-girl friend and high school buddies, Robin devises an ingenious scheme for revenge. Unfortunately, his elaborate sexual entrapment plan (the results of which he will broadcast on television) seems dicey to the others, so he prepares a plan B.
