A man about forty years old, father of two daughters each of them having a different mother, invites Charlotte sixteen, the eldest, to have a stroll in a park. He wants to announce her difficult news. Charlotte is not a little girl anymore. He tries to communicate with the child who is within her. All in all he tries to communicate with her, since he has always negleted her.
The sense of humour and the sensibility they have in common are turning this difficult moment into a lesson for both of them.
