It’s a dry, hot summer. Clouds of smoke rise from the mountains and before long forest fires will encroach on the houses. Billie (Ashleigh Cummings) and Laura (Lily Sullivan) have known each other for ages. The two girls spend a lot of time together, painting each other’s toenails and talking about everything – or almost everything. For Billie has started sleeping with Laura’s boyfriend Danny (Toby Wallace), secretly in the car parked on the riverbank. Neither of them has the courage to tell Laura what’s going on. And they so much want to do the right thing. The teenagers have fun at the bathing place, and hang out at night in parking lots and at parties. Billie and Danny can hardly bear to keep their hopeless love under wraps. Dazed and confused one night, Billie decides to steal a car at a party, just for fun.
