After moving with her family to the country side, Barbara faces a summer that does not seem to end. The tediousness and hostility of the end of August in an isolated area of the Mediterranean, the tense relationship – between desire, eroticism and doubt – with his older brother and the arrival in his life of a neighbor who embodies all that unknown world, will suddenly initiate Barbara into the strangeness and mystery of adolescence.
