Summer brings many changes for Anna, a quiet 14-year-old preparing for her confirmation. Her sexual awakening, brought about by her experimentation with a choirboy and the casual raunchiness of her grandfather, provokes doubts about her faith. She tries to work through her questions aided by her newly separated parents and the sensitive yet troubled village priest, but the conflict between faith and love may be irreconcilable.
