Younger Days

Synopsis

A group of friends – musicians, ex-musicians and their companions – gather in an old house (once a squat) in the countryside to scatter the ashes of their friend and hero, KAS. They were all invited by Kas’ heavily pregnant girlfriend SALLIE, to give a fitting send-off to their friend.

The charismatic Kas – singer and frontman of the grungy garage band they all played in – passed away 7 months previously. Kas was the oldest of the group and an inspiration, role-model and confidant to the rest. The friends are now all aged around 50, and for many of them life hasn’t turned out the way they expected.

The friends are really happy to see one another again and the weekend promises to be fun, chaotic and fuelled by drink, just like in the good old days. But the balance is disrupted when LO appears in the company of 26-year-old DELPHINA. Through her curiosity, free-spirited Delphina unintentionally but painfully exposes everyone’s weaknesses – including Kas’.

The relaxed atmosphere degenerates into conflict and revelations. The memories that emerge are very different seen from the points of view of the different members of the group, and history is rewritten.
