Maxime and Mélanie are in love. Together, they clumsily explore their sexuality with fiery curiosity until the day Mélanie realizes she’s pregnant. At first Maxime takes the news badly, but then he gets used to the idea of becoming a father. He  convinces Melanie to keep the baby. So it’s been decided – Maxime and Mélanie, all of fifteen years old, are going to become parents.
