Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Matteo (Vincenzo Salemme) is a very devoted teacher. He spends most of his free time during the school year taking care of his invalid father, but during the summer holidays he occasionally tutors students. This year, he has two students to bring up to speed in physics: Elsa (Carlotta Natou), a confident girl of the '90s, and Giulio (Arturo Paglia), a shy, soft-spoken boy. At the end of the holidays, after many weeks of intense tutoring, Matteo treats his charges to an overnight trip to the sea. Whatever he may possess in the way of good sense should prevent him from acting on his attraction to Elsa, but he is not able to accomplish this perfectly. Giulio is also attracted to the girl, and, while they are on their jaunt together, this puts the two men in competition with each other.
