It’s the last night of Astrid's (14) and Issi's (14) holiday by the beach. The mission is clear, especially for Issi: to find a guy and hopefully loose her virginity before the holidays are over. This is their last chance. During the evening they meet Samuel and Rashid, who take the girls to a bar. But the friendship between the girls are put to the test when Astrid and Samuel hits it off, and Astrid seems to get what Issi was chasing so desperately.
