Dublin, 1979: For 13-year-old Maeve there is only one topic at the moment: bras and cup sizes. Finally she is also wearing one, as well as her friends Ruth and Orla. Only Claire tries to be special again. As a feminist she wants to live a self-determined life and does not want to submit to the rules of the others. Topic number two, how should it be otherwise, is boys. Maeve has never had a boyfriend, not even a “sample“ to practise kissing. Equipped with a new self-confidence in the form of her bra, she starts looking for a boyfriend. And she really finds one. Maeve succeeds in arranging a date with Brian, the current heart-breaker of all teenagers. At the moment she is little concerned about the fact that she lets her friends down for him. She proudly walks at his side into the disco, but she is soon disillusioned. Right after the first dance Brian leaves her and goes away with another girl. After this humilation Maeve could really need her friends. But they are offended. At Maeve’s 14th birthday, however, Ruth, Orla and Claire are standing in the door. She finally understands that there are more important things in life than a bloke for showing off.
