Stefania, a restless twenty-seven-year-old would-be writer, shares joys and sorrows with Cecilia and Ilaria, her best friends. Cecilia works in a gym where the three friends meet every day to get rid of life’s frustrations and frivolities. But in the fitness centre car park Stefania meets Stefano. It is love at first sight for her, but also a reason for great embarrassment when, after looking through the gym records, she and her friends find out that Stefano is only seventeen. While trying to break free from her ex boyfriend Maurizio, Stefania decides to carry on with her life and makes love to Stefano in a bizarre artist’s bizarre flat. Despite feeling disheartened and wanting to bin her novel, she soon regains confidence and enthusiasm. By getting over other people’s envy and prejudices, she will definitely win Stefano’s heart.
