Synopsis: It’s 1961 and Jenny is a bright young girl on the cusp of her 17th birthday. She finds herself stifled by the tedium of adolescent routine and can’t wait for adult life to begin. One rainy day, her suburban life is upended by the arrival of an unsuitable suitor, 30- ish David. Urbane and witty, David introduces Jenny to a glittering new world of classical concerts and late-night suppers. Prior to meeting David, Jenny was trying to excel in her life by going to Oxford. Once she sees the lifestyle David can provide, she is hooked and thoughts of Oxford go out the window. Then, when things are looking pretty good for Jenny with the dashing David, the truth hits her like a ton of bricks. Jenny goes from being a bright eyed school girl to a sophisticated young lady and then all the way back to questioning if she really knows who she is at all.
