It's close to Christmas time. Cecilie (13) is seriously ill and spends most of her time in bed, daydreaming about Sebastiano, whom she fell in love with on a trip to South Europe the summer before. Sebastiano was Cecilie`s first love and he gave Cecilie her first kiss. He promised to write, but she still hasn`t heard a word. One night, a weird little man called Ariel enters her room, and claims he is an angel. He speaks about life, the eternity and God`s soapbobles before suddenly disappearing. But he returns and they enter a pact; to tell each other about the secrets of heaven and earth.

While everybody else is asleep Cecilie and Ariel go on living their own secret life. Will she tell Ariel about her first kiss? And will an angel tell a little girl the secrets of heaven...?
