Pep, 13, is completely in love with a girl from his grandparents' town, Sara Amat. One summer night Sara disappears without a trace. Few hours later, Pep finds her hidden in her room. The young woman explains that she has run away from home and asks to stay with him. Although Pep knows that the entire town is looking for her, he agrees and becomes her protector and accomplice during the last days before they leave the town. The boy is forced to live a double life: he has to lie to everyone and he must also satisfy Sara's requests, which will put him to the test and make him mature suddenly before the end of summer.
