In 1990, Milea, her sister Airin, and their parents move from Jakarta to Bandung. Her father is an Army officer. On her way to the school, he met Dilan, a bad boy and motorbike gang chief, who confidently says she will sit on his bike and he will be her boyfriend. Dilan starts to seduce her by coming to her house, calling to her house from payphone, and sending her gifts with romantic means; including a filled crossword puzzle book, as he says "so you would not be bother to think the answers". At the other hand, Milea has a boyfriend named Benni back in Jakarta. However, she is uncomfortable with him since he is rude and foul-mouthed. Despite Dilan's frequent overconfident movements, which initially made Nandan – her close friend who is in love with her – uncomfortable, Milea starts to develop feelings for him.

During a visit to TVRI in Jakarta as quiz contestants, Milea and Nandan, who are left for a while by their friend, encounter with Benni, who ferociously beat the hell out of him as Benni thinks Nandan will snatch his girlfriend. Amid the heated situation, Benni accuses Milea as a coquettish girl. She dumps Benni, for which he calls Milea a whore. Despite his effort to apologize, she rejects to his proposal to become couple again. Once again, Benni calls her devil and whore. Dilan and Milea get closer and closer, despite no love declaration has been made. They ride his motorbike to go home, occasionally hold hands, and phone to each other in the night. So close that Milea succeeds in persuading Dilan not to involve in gang fights anymore.

Milea develops a good relationship with Dilan's mother. One day, she is shown his messy bedroom by his mother, during which she is shown poems Dilan made for her.

Milea faces Kang Adi, her and Airin's personal tutor, who is apparently in love with her. He even takes her to see the university he is enrolling in, the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB). When he learns that Milea goes to the ITB with Kang Adi, he writes a disappointment letter, much to her despair. She searches him at the school, only to meet the drunken Anhar, one of Dilan's gang member, who slaps her. Knowing this, Dilan beats Anhar hard. Later that day, Dilan and Milea officially become boyfriend and girlfriend.
