Fourteen-year-old Hervé is a normal teen. Overwhelmed by his impulses, physically unappealing, and only half-smart, he lives with his mother. At high school, he scrapes through, surrounded by good pals. Dating a girl, that's what totally occupies his mind. Unfortunately, in this area, girls keep shutting him down, but he hasn't given up hope yet. One day, without really understanding how, it seems that Aurore, one of the prettiest girls in his class, actually likes him.
Despite her passes that become increasingly obvious, Hervé, half dimwit, doesn't notice anything. When, he finally becomes aware of what's happen, Aurore refuses to go out with him. Then, without a warning, she throws herself into his arms.
At last, he's dating a girl!
Camel, his best friend, who's heavily into hand jobs and porn films, persuades Hervé to try to sleep with Aurore. Hervé boasts of his virility when he's with Camel, but when he's with Aurore, it's a whole different matter.
