Synopsis

Kerou is a 17-year-old high school student. Like other girls of her age, she is trying to find herself. A bit of a dreamer, she lacks self-confidence and is nostalgic for the carelessness of childhood. Shihao is a young and attractive lad who is a bit of a rebel. He is a favourite with the girls. Yuezhen, Kerou’s best friend, is mad about him. Even if Shihao is concentrating first and foremost on winning the schools swimming championship, he is also very attracted to Kerou. Her manner intrigues him. One day, Kerou comes to one of his training sessions and opens her heart to him. What she tells him turns his world upside down and together the two adolescents have their first taste of adulthood.
