Plot

Jenny stands on the brink of becoming a woman: a brilliantly witty and attractive 16-year-old whose suburban life is about to be blown apart by the utterly unsuitable 30-something David.

Urbane and witty, David manages to charm her conservative parents Jack and Marjorie. David introduces Jenny to a glittering new world of classical concerts and late-night suppers with his attractive friend and business partner, Danny and Danny's girlfriend, the beautiful but vacuous Helen. Just as Jenny's family's long-held dream of getting their brilliant daughter into Oxford seems within reach, Jenny is tempted by another kind of life.
