A boy and a girl, betrothed since childhood, are still fond of each other as teenagers. Their families, however, now have other plans for them, and try to break up the relationship. They reason that their association with each other at this stage is dangerous and will have an adverse impact on their future. The young boy and girl, on the other hand, believe all problems can be solved if the rite of marriage is performed on them, allowing them to see each other without transgressing any social moves. Shot as a film within a film, the boy speaks into the camera throughout the entire movie, relating his memories and interpretations to the audience.
