The story of the series revolves around a budding romance between two 15 years old school friends, who don’t even take drugs, drink alcohol, swear or even argue with their parents.
Instead, they are sweet, chronically polite, and go out for milkshakes, perform dutifully in school music concerts, and have chaste movie nights. All these things make the spark between them slowly blossom into love.
