Giada, Omar, Jorge and Aaron are 15 years old. And they live on La Gomera, the second smallest island of the Canaries, far away from the European mainland in the Atlantic Ocean. They spend the summer on their skateboards and bikes, on social media and at the local fiesta. Time seems to fly by without any hardship or discomfort. However, the not so distant future is always on their minds. Their local school does not offer any further education after the age of 16, thus, they need to decide where they want to continue schooling next summer, and which career they want to pursue. A subtle and touching documentary that captures special and decisive moments and portraits adolescence as an instantaneous stage of life.
