Nathan is the new guy at the school and lives alone with his father. Just arrived, there is already a picture going around that depicts him kissing another young boy. When the picture is uploaded to Facebook, a merciless gauntlet race begins. Who was the other boy? The guesswork escalates into violent hostility from his classmates. Father Stéphane is perplexed and shocked that his son is supposed to be gay. When it turns out that the other boy was Louis, a young boxer, the world of those involved is thrown apart. Louis' parents do everything in their power to lead their son back to what they believe to be the right path. Director Didier Bivel tells a coming-out story in HIDDEN KISSES, in which the hurdles to social acceptance become the central theme.
