Headbutt is about the attempts of Tobias to be close again to his brother Lucas. They used to do everything together, but now Lucas spends hours gaming alone in the dark. Tobias tries to get closer to his brother and even if Lucas is ignoring him, he doesn’t give up. Then, in an ultimate attempt to reach Lucas, Tobias comes too close and pushes Lucas further away from him than ever before.
