A close knit group of young men get in a heated squabble in which one of them gets fatally injured. Panicked, these 20 year olds fear for their friendship and promise to stay silent. They then meet Pierrot and Madonna, an out of the ordinary couple who met and got married as a result of a prank masterminded by the group of young men. The encounter with the couple is heartwarming and exudes a message of love and hope.
