Synopsis

It is summer, and Eva is 13 years old. Neglected by her parents, she invents games in which she and two young boys invite girls from the local school to solve riddles. These games become ever more sexual, with dramatic consequences. Twenty years on, Eva returns to the village just as a new hall is being inaugurated, in the same barn where the dreadful events of that summer occurred.

'When It Melts' ('Het Smelt') is celebrated actress Veerle Baetens' feature film debut, based on the bestseller by Lize Spit.
