Two teenagers, Marie and her friend Suzanne, are on a holiday trip from their home in Montréal to Martinique. A series of amusing events takes place after Marie bumps into a young man named Pierre at the airport. Marie's initial reaction to Pierre is not very positive, nor does her second impression of him improve when he accidentally spills water on her during some turbulence on the plane. However, he redeems himself at the end of the story during a scuba-diving excursion.
