Silvia, an introspective young girl, is not interested in the daily routine between family and school. She seems to move in search of something to make her feel more alive. She thinks she finally finds that something in Arthur, a young boy who come up in her class after he was banned from other schools. Silvia is amazed by his vitality, when he actually suffers from a serious illness – hemophilia. They immerse themselves in an intense and brief coexistence, interrupted by an accident in which Arthurs bleeds to death. Silvia gets sick and sees her life turning into a strange nightmare. The mourning gradually becomes an obsession, the obsession a goal – Silvia will do anything to bring him back to life.
