Plagued by the monotony of a chewy small-town summer break, 16-year-old Tati longs for one last adventure with her friends. When her mother gets in the way of her desire for freedom, Tati escapes and finds refuge with her best friend. There, between hot concrete and a swimming lake, youthful recklessness mixes with the fear of missing out and, fueled by canned beer and euphoria, ends in a fight against the sunrise.
