Un par de adolescentes en celo Ciudad de México a partir de diferentes clases que, después de su amigas salir de viaje a Italia para el verano, embrujados por un magnífico mujer mayor española se reúnan en una boda. Cuando ella está de acuerdo en que los acompañara en un viaje a una playa lejana, los tres forman una alianza cada vez más intensa y sensual que en última instancia los despoja tanto física como emocionalmente desnudo.
