Julie is a young, rich and sarcastic patient in a mental clinic with a "doing nothing" manifesto: she doesn't study, she doesn't work, she doesn't have friends. Agnes is a naive nurse and young mother of a three years old with only one problem in life: she doesn't get the all thing about being a mother. When the two wild spirits meet in the mental clinic, they start a rebellion that will question and set (literally) on fire everything and everybody around them. Stay Still is a poetic, witty and radical portrait of a generation with nothing to lose and nothing to gain. Yes it is dangerous, but yes, it is also very exciting.
