Kara Immelman se lewe is eintlik nogal uitgesorteer. Sy is in matriek en hoewel sy heeltemal te skaam is om gewild te wees, het sy vir Eduard, haar beste vriend van laerskooldae af. Sy is ook haar skool se topswemmer en die moontlikheid van ’n swembeurs wink. Al gebeur daar nie veel op die dorpie waar hulle woon nie, het sy en Eduard groot planne om eendag die wêreld te sien. Planne wat aangevuur word deur hulle gedeelde passie vir flieks. Wanneer Samantha egter op die toneel verskyn, herrangskik dit Kara en Eduard se hele bestaan. Want Sam is nie net onmoontlik mooi nie, sy speel ook volgens haar eie reëls.
