Armand, a 6-year-old boy, is accused of crossing boundaries against his best friend at elementary school.

Armand's mother, Elisabeth, has been called in for a parent-teacher meeting on short notice. Her son is accused of something, but what this «something» is seems unclear. Soon, the principal, the school nurse, and another pair of parents are also taking part in a meeting the school quickly loses control over.


ARMAND is the Opening Film at this year's Oslo Pix Film Festival.
