First goodbyes are the hardest.
Twelve-year old Mila has a crush on her neighbour, and everyone knows. She has a strange attraction for Sam, a 40-year old coach who’s moving away for good.
Love is as love is, at the age of twelve. Nobody tells you what’s right or what’s wrong about what you feel. Mila is determined to take off with him. She crushed. So hard.
Why would it be wrong to follow her heart?
