Cerise is 14, but she looks 20. She grew up on the outskirts of Paris, but is now in exile in Ukraine. She has never known her father, but now has to live with him. Cerise has never shown any interest in anyone or anything but herself, but now she is lost in the communistic ideals of a society that no longer exists. Cerise is an adolescent's rambling search for a perfect love and a search for herself.
