In 1956, the shy Jonathan's luck with girls changes when he wins the rebellious Gene as a friend in his last year of high school. Gene is adored by many girls and manages to teach Jonathan a few lessons. Gene himself would rather just be with one girl: his girlfriend Bunny. However, since his father is poor, her parents don't accept him.

The US Home Video version on VHS shows more nudity than the theatrical and DVD releases. This is due to a framing issue, and not alternate or extended footage. The VHS version must be open matte. It shows more image above and below the 1.85:1 framing, but some of the image on the left and right is cropped. This results in quite a bit more female nudity during the sex scene. See more
