Maria and Pedro, in their separate ways, become pivotal to that.
There Pedro is exposed to the `University of Life' through adolescence itself. His creative talent is encouraged and exposed, as are the challenges of a veritable fan club of contemporary girlfriends, discovering their own emotions and playing with his.
Diverse characters comprising the initial hotel clientele enter his life, as do a field of sunflowers and a deaf, mute boy whose great artistic talents Peter discovers, to take into the future.
Maria finds new and exciting love too...
