What were your first lessons in love?
A young Jewish girl asks a charming street musician for a guitar lesson. They meet the next day, after school.
He leads her to his simple and humble home, with a view of the city.
She gets her first guitar lesson, her first drag on a cigarette, and although it’s a stretch to call what they have love, she also has her first lesson in love.
The first guitar lesson was free.
The other lessons? Rejection. And walking away, gracefully.
