In this teen romance, a young neglected English boy named Paul Harrison (Sean Bury) runs away and becomes friends with a French girl named Michelle La Tour (Anicee Alvina) on the same flight. Together, they go to an idyllic marsh location in France; specifically, the Camargue. There, they become lovers, set up housekeeping, have a baby, and play at being responsible adults. Along the way, both Paul and Michelle discover many of the troubles that can be involved with family life.
Ultimately, however, police who have responded to a missing-persons report separate the two and, presumably, take their baby into protective custody.
