Sanjar is an adolescent living in Tashkent and like many boys, he goes down the canal across the city on a big inner tube. He spots a beautiful girl with big eyes and blond hair and stops on the riverbank. It's love at first sight.

Based on three short stories with common characters, Tenderness focuses on the very significant moment of adolescence. In these three stories told with a free non linear narration, obviously influenced by the Italian neo realism and the French New Wave, these young adults are bound to make choices for their lives, small or big ones, ranging from anecdotal love to heroic deed.
