Adam is a delightful sixteen-year-old who does well in school and spends his spare time practising the cello. Or that's what his parents think. But there is another side to him, which comes to the fore when he falls for a labourer called Sylvain and realises that friendships have the potential to be more than platonic. The results are explosive in this passionate story of illicit romance and teenage angst over one long, hot summer in the French countryside.
