Nico, the fat one, the jellyfish, likes to beam himself into different worlds. On the class field trip, however, he actually saves Sera, who looks like an Egyptian queen, from being groped. Sera’s courage at asking him to dance is crazy and leads to a real emergency adventure. The two flee and experience an amazing evening that ends by stealing ice-cream from the gas station. It is the beginning of a friendship between two 13-year-olds who could hardly be more opposite, but who both were courageous at a decisive moment and are ready to face new things. A very moving story, subtly observed, and told in a light, humorous style.
