Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

The two brothers (Ludovic Vandendaele and Erick Da Silva) in this story are homeless and unsocialized; if they ever knew a loving family, it was from the outside looking in. They live by stealing, but they get their kicks from breaking things; at the beginning of the film they have stolen a bus and driven it over the edge of a cliff. They are fascinated by fish, especially the kind that are still trying to breathe even though they have been on ice for hours. In their imaginations, they are sharks and the rest of society is fish.
