The film tells the story of sixteen-year-old Nena, who is confronted with the suicide attempt of her handicapped father. She is devastated and confused by his desire to die. At the same time she falls head over heels in love for the first time in her life with Carlo, whose father has just come out of the closet and abandoned his family for another. Away from the prying eyes of the adults - who struggle with failed marriages, blossoming love and insufferable physical decline - Nena and Carlo push the boundaries of their friendship, love and sexuality. But while discovering her own lust for life, Nena realizes that her father's hopeless existence is becoming more and more unbearable for him.
