Somewhere between a home-video and a postmodern documentary this film is composed entirely of user uploaded videos. Arte Povera, POV documentary, cinéma vérité, perhaps a portrait of a generation: Joe. Or, more accurately, what the hell is water?

Jan Bocquoy narrates the story of his sexual life to age 28, imagining his conception (parents drunk, the encounter lasting ten seconds) and reporting his first orgasm (at the hands of Eddy, in a beach-side caravan, as they watch Laurel and Hardy), his comparative experiences with girls, and his move from Harelbeck to Brussels.
