Thinking David is a film about a journey that every gay goes through. Sometimes it may take a year, sometimes even a lifetime. Trigger becomes a trip organized by Jewish organizations, which takes students on a tour of Israel. The trip outside of the Czechia attracts David and his best friend Klára. Israel becomes a milestone for both. The trip is a test of the friendship. David celebrates his 18th B-day which escalates in a secret escape to a wild party where David meets Itaj. They secretly spend time together. Upon return to the Czechia, David wants to overcome all obstacles that await at home. Coming-out to his family and friends goes better than he thought but it turns out that the biggest challenge is his own internal self-acceptance. David feels that he was robbed of all the experiences associated with youth and he tries to catch up with everything he had missed. He goes back to his dreams and values. He also realizes that it is not important, who we love or what we believe in.
