Based on true events of an infamous murder case from the early 1960s.
Simon, a 16-year-old boy is desperately trying to be friends with Arnout and Victor Van Riebeeck, two brothers from a wealthy family. He manages to become part of their clique. Then Ronnie, a petty thief, cunningly manages to blackmail the boys. Ronnie is on the run from the police, and convinces the boys to give him shelter and hide him from the law in the attic of the Van Riebeeck villa. Ronnie spends over five weeks in the attic without anyone else being aware of the uninvited houseguest. That is, until the family goes on holiday.
