An angry interchange results in Sarah being sent to her grandfathers for the summer holidays, at a seaside resort. Here she meets a group of local teenagers, including one boy, David. A growing friendship between Sarah and David triggers off more conflicts.

This time Sarah faces the problems and learns to take her place with her peers.
