Brooklyn teenager Jeffrey Willis (Matt Dillon), thoroughly unhappy with his modest homestead, embraces the other-world aspects of his summer job at the posh Flamingo Club. He spurns his father (Hector Elizondo) in favor of the patronage of smooth-talking Phil Brody (Richard Crenna) and is seduced by the ample bikini charms of club member Carla Samson (Janet Jones). But thanks to a couple of late-summer hard lessons, the teen eventually realizes that family should always come first.
