Sensitive fatherless Pim, a shy closet gay, grows up as utterly neglected son of Yvette, a hedonistic nightclub waitress at the Flemish North Sea coast. Pim finds solace with the hospitable neighbors, especially slightly older, cocky son Gino, who acts as his generous big brother and even enjoys experimenting sexually, camping in the dunes. Once a major, Gino takes a foxy girlfriend and a job, so he can move out, while his ever-jealous sister Sabrina tries to seduce Pim. Yvette takes in suave gypsy Zoltan, whose kindness and perfect body give Pim new hope, only to find he’s his mother’s lover. Pim now flees back to the neighbors, but Gino leaves and takes a girl as fiancée.
