Maria and Sergio are classmates but have never talked much. After summer break Maria for noticed by Cristian for the first time, a guy she has been madly infatuated with over a year.
Cristian sends Sergio to ask her to meet and sleep together. It is a blunt and unromantic proposal but the girl, faced with her crush asking her such a thing, immediately accepts. She soon panics: not having had any experience like that she is uncertain what will happen and what she will have to do. She is terrified of appearing ridiculous and not even Simona, her best friend, can comfort her. Feeling lonely she prefers staying on her own. Thus, when Sergio understands Maria’s distress, he offers to help her.
The two of them spend the entire afternoon together to prepare Maria for the “task” discovering a complicity and delight in being together that they had never felt.
