By the pool, time stopped for a young boy who is finishing his breakfast with his feet in the water. Summer vacations are almost over. Left on his own, with his parents always busy, the child with a rich imagination fills his days with thousands of little activities. In the afternoon, he puts on his cape and hops on a bike, he feeds all the street cats and sometimes, when he’s lucky, meets Lily… he just knows her name. She’s is beautiful. He is shy. Tomorrow is the first day at school. But there still so much things to do: to draw, to build a tree house, to watch the stars, to smile at Lily…

Today is a big day. Not a single familiar face in the classroom. The year will be long. But maybe there are still some nice surprises in stock?
