Brief synopsis

Twenty-year-old Patrick has run away from the home of his kidnapper, Mark (65) with whom he has lived in Brussels since he was 8. He now has a new life in Paris with his photographer boyfriend, Thomas (45). In addition to working as a prostitute, Patrick runs a pornography website featuring underage boys and girls. Following a raid at a party where Patrick is filming a sex scene with a minor, he is taken to prison. The authorities discover that his ID is fake and confront him with his true identity: Mário Mendonça, a boy who was kidnapped 12 years ago in Portugal.
He now has the opportunity to choose between serving a heavy sentence or returning to his family in Portugal, where his past would be taken into account and he would be given a softer sentence.
