A young woman, working as sales-girl at a shopping center's music shop, wants someone with whom to share her secrets. A distant mother separating from her father, an aunt who emigrated to France, and her pre-adolescent sister, can't do - neither the boyfriend. Such a confident arrives unexpectedly - but then there are three of them, one too much. One leaves, but then another young man arrives, and there are three again. One must go. A sad young adult love story, told in the first person, singular - and ultimately alone, under the rain.

A large abstract painting, sat on the floor of the house on the beach, is shown several times. The painting's central figure is a pyramid with two faces to the front, one pitch black, the other bright golden - such as the two contrasting personalities of Rita and Anne, or the two sides of each of those young women. The painting is by António Charrua (1925-2008). See more
