Suzanne is 16. People her own age bore her. Every day on her way to high school, she passes a theatre. There, she meets an older man, and develops a mutual obsession.
Despite their age difference, they find in each other an answer to their ennui and fall in love. But Suzanne is afraid she’s missing out on life – that life of a 16-year-old, which she had struggled so much to enjoy in the same way as her peers.
