Bea is 16,5 and a sophomore in high school. She writes for the school paper and is the last one in her group of friends to lose her virginity. She’s in love with the school’s best looking, most intelligent and coolest senior, Daniel.
Then, the miracle of all miracles happens; Bea’s interest in Daniel turns out to be mutual. Suddenly, a new world of social and sexual possibilities is available. But, according to her friends, there’s only one little problem: The fact that when someone is about to lose their virginity, they should never do it with someone their in love with. After all, the first time always goes wrong! This is a problem for Bea until her friend Mia comes up with the solution: Anders.
Anders wants to become a gardener, is 19, and completely uninteresting. He is therefore, the perfect candidate. Mia arranges for Bea and Anders to meet, but forgets to mention to Anders that his role as “bed buddy” is just that and nothing else.
After a clumsy yet successful get-together, Anders has reason to believe that Bea is genuinely interested in him. But she’s not. She does of course want to be together with Daniel. Or does she? Or does she want something completely different? Like perhaps moving to Canada in order to study at a new school?
