It’s summer, but life for 15-year-old Sara is very complicated. With her younger brother in tow, she is on her way to spend the summer holidays with her mother. Her father insisted on this, in spite of the fact that she jilted him. Their mother lives in a caravan on a campsite. What a place to begin a new life! Fortunately, there is the beach – and there are boys. Now, if only Sara were allowed to live her life.
