Peter Bennings begins his teen years naive and awkward, still living the predictable, uncomplicated life of his youth, dreaming about his future. His sexual maturity brings fantasizing sexual encounters with real and imaginary girls, struggling with his awkwardness and immaturity. High school changes Peter's life forever. He's a lost soul, struggling to find his place. Music - the British Invasion and psychedelic rock - becomes Peter's refuge, and he follows his dream of playing drums in a band. Sex, booze, and rock and roll now rule Peter's life. All he wants is to escape, physically and mentally. Graduation arrives, friends scatter, and Vietnam and the draft loom in the distance. What lies ahead for him? Who will be there to help him find his way?
