Solange is 14. She is a modern young teenager, full of life and curiosity for the future, with something special about her: she is extremely sentimental and adores her parents. One day, her parents argue, fall out, begin to distance themselves from each other – discord raises its head.
While the shadow of divorce becomes clearer, Solange sees her world cracking. She worries, reacts, suffers, fights, in short, she continues believing.
This is the story of a sensitive young teenager who wants something impossible: for love to go on forever.
