Aurora, eighteen, has just moved to a small town in Tuscany. Living in a house that had once belonged to her paternal grandfather, Aurora finds a model galleon that they were to build together before he died. She decides to build the model and via a blog meets Alessandro, 23, a nautical engineering student. An intense relationship of shared stories sparks between them, but when Aurora suggests that they meet, he backs off. Meanwhile, Aurora begins to date Riccardo, audacious and attractive. Frustrated by Alessandro’s reticence, she allows herself to be courted by Riccardo. One day, Alessandro suggests they meet on the train; Aurora gets to know him and falls head over heels in love even though Alessandro is in a wheelchair.
