Two mismatched sets of lovers arrive at the British seaside town of Scarborough. The shy and beautiful Liz is much older than her 16 year-old companion, the happy-go-lucky and impulsive Daz. Sensitive artist Aiden is also older than his 16 year-old lover, the fiery and impulsive Beth. Away from the prying eyes of their hometown, the two couples laugh, quarrel, make love and enjoy their anonymity. But as both couples are forced to come to terms with the illicit nature of their love, power shifts from one to the other and joy turns to suffering as they reel from the destructive force of unbridled love.
