Try him. Here is the only way to get to a hundred years without the hump. And then Joel, who of years has thirteen, promises to learn to resist frost and heat, to escape with his father from the monotony of his village towards a mysterious island and to see a naked woman. Everything by the end of the new year. Meanwhile he plunges the seas aboard a sailing ship on a shelf, he plans a career as a king of rock and passes the nights in search of the drunken father. Without knowing that the biggest adventure awaits him in the woods.
