Melanie is spending her summer vacation in a health centre to lose weight. Between sports activities, nutritional advice, pillow fights and her first cigarettes, Melanie falls under the spell of the centre's director, a doctor forty years her senior. She loves like a person who is in love for the first time and tries desperately to seduce him.
