Besides, he usually meets Patricia there, a rich and liberated young woman, who he likes a lot. To impress Patricia and satisfy some of her wishes, he lets himself be seduced by André, a homosexual who, in return for his sexual favors, gives him money and promises him a trip to a surfing championship in Hawaii
