Joris is trying to come to terms with his broken family relationships on the 10th anniversary of his father’s death when he meets the free-spirited, Yad. Also dealing with family issues, Yad has returned home to the Netherlands after living on his own. Joris and Yad spark an instant connection but fear their families could threaten their relationship. This ultra-sexy romantic comedy goes beyond the usual young gay love story, marking JUST FRIENDS as a truly modern tale of queer love.
