It is summer vacation and two best friends spend all their time together indoors. They are inseparable and prefer to do everything together. Always. But the naturalness of their alliance is seriously tested in this short drama when puberty knocks on the door. While the long summer drags on, the almost unnoticed changes in their bodies bring awkwardness to their previously close friendship.
