Two couples, all in their early 40s, rent a villa on the Italian coast to spend the summer together.
Immediately there are tensions. Not only within the two couples, but also between them.
Diego is a typical playboy, his wife Shary is cultured but quick-tempered. Matteo is an over intelligent psychoanalyst, and his wife Francesca a bit naive and vulnerable.
Into this already somewhat heady mix of people arrives Diego and Shary's son David to celebrate his eighteenth birthday. David, a beautiful boy with the appearance of a Greek god, has become a grown man and has everything Diego never had. David is good at sports, intelligent and has a side job as an underwear model. David's arrival puts dormant tensions on edge. And Matteo, to his own surprise, finds himself hugely attracted to his best friend's son.
In the Italian summer heat, Matteo becomes a voyeur, spying on the beautiful David in an attempt to conquer the gorgeous young man. Matteo's wife senses that something has changed in her relationship with her husband....
