A boarding school, literature as a compass and a surprising love story.

Following her parents’ divorce, Irene is sent to a cliffside boarding school in the south of England.

There she will experience her first disappointment in love with great pain, while at the same time gaining an unexpected mentor: Peter Hugues, the strictest teacher in the school, offers to teach her the “grammar of love” through seven great novels of the genre, from Goethe and Jane Austen to García Márquez and Murakami.

Irene will gradually fall in love with her teacher, while another mysterious suitor secretly aspires to her heart.
