Damien and Thomas are 17. They have many differences - more than Damien’s mother being a doctor and Thomas’s mother being ill. They are from different social classes and Damien is constantly bullied by Thomas. Their loud and noisy relationship becomes more complicated when the ill mother asks Damien to stay with them and help her son with his school. They both change and their feelings transform. One of the French masters, André Téchiné, flashes a young glance to growing pains and sexual identity crises with his latest film Being 17.
