Maxime and Mélanie are in love and with great tenderness the two teenagers explore their sexuality. When Mélanie finds out she's pregnant, Maxime reacts at first negatively. He feels too young and is worried about his career as a professional goalkeeper. But, little by little, he grows accustomed to the feeling and the pair convince each other that they should keep the child. So, at just 15, Maxime and Mélanie will be parents.
