An Italian summer in black and white. Not very far away from the old border that divided Eastern and Western Europe there is Bibione. A little seaside resort of architectural style from the 60's which fills up with tourists. In the fast, dense flow of the redhot days of the summer sun, the people, natives and non-natives, young and old, work and live. In the background specks of summer life.
Conrad Birdie is the biggest rock & roll star of the 60's ever to be drafted. Aspiring chemist and song writer Albert is convinced he can make his fortune and marry his girlfriend Rosie if he gets Conrad on the Ed Sullivan show to kiss a high school girl goodbye. Albert's mother will do anything to break him up with Rosie. Kim and Hugo, the high school steadies, live in Sweet Apple, Ohio where most of the action takes place.
