With one of their fathers recently deceased and the other hardly there, fate brings fifteen-year-old Paul and fourteen-year-old Michelle together in a chance encounter. Instant friends, the young couple flees Paris on a whim, and takes refuge in a rural cottage. But as their fondness for each other blossoms into deep affection, their short trip becomes longer and their love deeper. Written by

Out there there's not a sound to be heard, / And the seasons seem to sleep upon their words, / As the waters freeze up with the summer's end. / Oh, it's funny how young lovers start as friends. / Yes, it's funny how young lovers start as friends.
