The film set in 1995 is inspired by the memories of Billy, who is now a single father living with Am, his teenage daughter. The things that happen to his daughter are a reminder of what happened to him and his friends at that age. In the 1990s there were four schools that were collectively nicknamed “4 Kings” for basically bringing together conflictive students. Billy became deeply depressed, when his mother remarried and his stepfather hated him. He only felt good with his friends whom he was also losing and this marked him for life.
