What do you dream about when you are 16 and in the 80’s of the last century you are in a seaside resort in Normandy? About best friend? About a lifelong teenage pact?

And that’s why you save it to the very end.

He arrives in Cincinnati, where he has to positively motivate the participants of the congress for the employees of the customer lines. He stays in a hotel just like any other hotel he has been in over the years, and undergoes a series of learned rituals. He would probably drive away this crisis, as usual, with booze and sleep, if he did not meet the extremely shy Lisa Hesselman, who is his fan.
