A small town in Puglia, mid '70s. Carlo is a sixteen-year-old boy who wants to grow up fast. His friends are older than him and they ali represent role models to him. He is the youngest member of an ambitious music band and is desperately in love with a schoolmate. He's always arguing with his father, a postal service employee, constant dreamer and amateur playwright and theatre director - every year he produces his own plays amidst the townsfolk' sneers.
Carlo has goals and shows clear view about his future. He wants to get away from his father and his obsession of making an actor out of him. He wants to spend all of his time with his band and become a famous musician. He wants to be just like his friends: as talented as Enzo, as intelligent as Vito, as attractive as Nicola. He wants to make love with Antonella and establish with her a serious relationshjPJ just like Nicola and his fiancee MauraJ an independent and free giri full of verve and life. But everything changes with the arrivai of three girls from northem Italy: Tea, Gaia and LenaJ daughters of an engineer about to build a new factory which will open to work opportunities for the town.
The girls seem to come from a different world: their behaviour, the way they dress, their accent, their very names, are intriguing and strange. Carlo's friends are swept by a frenzy. Nicola falls in love with Gaia and leaves Maura. Vito starts a relationship with Tea and decides to drop university and leave town with her, breaking up with his longtime fiancee Giuseppina. Carlo, rejected by Antonella, is attracted to Lena, the youngest sister, but he soon realises that his father is also drawn by the girl. Lena is given a part in the play, and Carlo's mother is quite worried about the turn things are taking.
Old certainties are shaking. The band becomes even more ambitious and Carlo is thrown out in favour of a better keyboards player. Maura, the rebel who has never given up and has reacted courageously when faced with the end of her relationship with Nicola, dies tragically in a car crash. Her death is causes for many regrets and deep grieving. All seems lost. But the time comes for the annual performance and Carlo, watched with undisguised satisfaction by his father, discovers he's able to enchant the audience.
