Racconta la storia di Camilla Francesca Matilde Randone che si innamora di Adelmo Franci, ragazzo che pulisce la piscina della sua villa al mare dell'Argentario. Camilla crede che possa essere lui il ragazzo del suo primo vero bacio, che non ha mai dato. Le amiche false, l'addio della sua migliore amica (la donna delle pulizie che la conosce da quando era piccola), il tradimento del padre e la poca considerazione degli amici "fighi" della Roma "bene" in vacanza anche loro nelle ville della maremma, creano in Camilla una grande confusione. Il film è tratto dal romanzo di Teresa Ciabatti "Adelmo, torna da me!", del 2003.

It's summer holidays, 1987. To the accompaniment of the Psychedelic Furs, Camilla (Gabriela Belisario) and mom Giovanna (Laura Morante) settle into a luxurious villa on the Tuscan seaside. With her mother's neuroses heightened by a cheating husband (Andrea Renzi) and oodles of empty time, Camilla turns her need for attention onto the unlikely subject of 17-year-old pool-boy Adelmo (Iacopo Petrini), but he's not interested in her Lolita act until she starts lying about her life to make him either impressed or sympathetic.
