A St. Louis summer in the 1950's. A great summer for the coming-of-age of a sixteen year old boy. A great summer to learn a little about love and a lot about life. Through the eyes and heart of Ben, our story follows his mother's need for his sister to “marry well”. His sister's ambivalence toward her rich suitor intertwines with the bloom of Ben's own romantic yearnings as he discovers in that summer the hopeful, yet perplexing mix of emotions that rule the romantic spirit in us all.
