A short documentary of three self-conscious paedophiles giving a merciless insight into their experiences.

Three paedophiles give an insight into their minds and thoughts. The sexual feelings of Kasper (24, student), Hugo (35, writer) and Ben (44, financial consultant) are in sharp contrast with their rational moral. How do they cope with this conflict? How do you learn to live with a sexual orientation that is being considered morbid? And how do these high-educated paedophiles deal with the heterosexual culture they live in? Among Us is a short documentary of three self-conscious paedophiles giving a merciless insight into their experiences.
