Buck is a 15-minute television series in which the relationship between Elias and Buck is central. In this story we follow the inconspicuous and uncertain Elias who struggles with his life as a pubescent teenager. He finds distraction in a computer game in which his digital hero commander Buck never lets him down. When he plays, he doesn't have to worry about his two older sisters, his single mother, bully Dylan, the new school - in short, the world. In his room no one hurts him, until one day when he finds Buck standing next to his bed. From then on nothing is as it was before!
Buck is primarily a dramedy for the youth. In this coming-of-age story, we follow Elias’ change into a confident teenagerwho dares to be who he is. Someone who dares to take it up against the school bully. Someone who lets his heart speak to the girl of his dreams... Obviously, this development is one of trial and error: sometimes painful, sometimes funny, but always real.
