At the beginning of summer, the year they are twelve, two boys explore a forbidden cave near their homes. 

Everyone in town knows about the cave. A few still whisper about the tragedy that happened there a generation ago. It's a dangerous place, their parents tell them, and they should stay away.

But temptation proves to be too much. Soon, both boys are lost within a story of awakening and innocence lost. A story one of them will remember for the rest of his life.
