A small town. Summer in all its splendor. Fabrizio is dating Nadia, they are experiencing the beginnings of adolescence and they're ready to have their first time together. The problem is they don't have a place to be alone together. Fabrizio looks for help among his friends, of whom many also share his anxieties. Together they come up with a plan; to buy the neighbor, Don Atilio's old car, then take it to an isolated field outside the town, and transform it into a love nest. After great collective effort and organization, the children get the money to buy the car, always doing the impossible so that the adults will never discover their plan.
