His father is serving a term for an "election day violation", hers for stealing money to pay her mother's hospital bills. (And not wanting her mother to know that her husband's in jail, the young girl contemplates prostitution to raise the money for her father's bail so he can visit his wife in the hospital). The young lovers soon embrace both each other and their mutual alienation. Shrugging off their responsibilities they jump on a motorbike and head for the beach for a fleeting moment of romance.
