Every party and every summer love must end sooner or later. Nora tells her friends that she is going to leave, and the group is about to spend their last day together. The initially easy-going farewell takes a bittersweet turn when it transpires that Léo is not nearly as indifferent to Nora’s departure as he might think. The fact that summer is always followed by autumn doesn’t necessarily mean that the chance for unbridled adventure must also be lost.
