Videoboy is loosely based on a short novel written by the well known Norwegian writer Tore Renberg. The story takes place in the late 1980s. The relationship between 13 year old Hasse and Pål is tested the day they accept an offer to visit a boy who is famous for his collection of videofilms. The journey they take gets darker and darker, and the young boys are forced to meet boundaries that they never have been even close to. Nothing will ever be the same.
