Synopsis

HEARTSTONE tells a story about strong friendship between two boys growing up in a fishing village.
Thor is small for his age but has a crush on Beth, the most beautiful girl in the village. When Thor’s best friend, Christian sees how troubled Thor is, Christian tries to help him win Beth’s heart over. But in that process, Christian begins to experience feelings that he doesn't understand – new feelings toward Thor.
Christian presses these feelings but when things start to work out between Thor and Beth, tension rises between the friends. Thor slowly realizes that for Christian he is more then just a friend and as a result he distances himself away. Christian, alone and faced with his sexuality, fills with desperation and tries to end his own life.

Christian survives but the question arises: Will the boys’ friendship be able to reunite?
