The young director takes us through a psychological and touching story about a young boy named Silas and his prostitute mother. Silas doesn’t know his own father and the only men he is in contact with are the costumers visiting his mother. He quickly starts to wonder how he can get his mother’s attention – he has to become a man. But how can he become a real man, and what does it take? ‘Manood’ is an innovating story about sex, violence and love told through an innocent child’s eyes.
