Thirteen-year-old boys Léo and Rémi spend the long summer holidays in innocent intimacy, but come the school year, their close friendship is thrown into disarray as their relationship is noticed and commented on by their contemporaries. In reaction to their sometimes insulting or intrusive comments, Léo attempts to distance himself from Rémi while struggling to understand what has happened. Close is a deeply moving, emotional film about friendship and responsibility.
