Patrick, 20-year-old, lives in Paris with his older boyfriend. He runs a teenage pornography website, which leads him to jail, following a raid at a party. The authorities then discover his true identity: Mário, a boy who was kidnapped 12 years ago in Portugal. He can choose to return to his family in Portugal and help with the enquiry.
When Mário goes back to Portugal, he tries adapting to his new reality: he and his mother hardly know each other and struggle to communicate. She finds it difficult to recognise her son. The only person he can turn to is his cousin. But his two identities conflict: the life in Paris, parties, drugs and promiscuity, and a new rural life amid a broken family.
