Can a serious young man who repeatedly faced death in the hot, stinking jungles of Asia navigate the sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll life on a college campus in 1968? Changed from a boy to a man by four years in Viet Nam, Sam Caldwell enters Jefferson College in Washington, D.C. on the G.I. Bill. Serious about his studies but not about women, Sam sees the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen up close on his first day as a college student.  

Ellen lived a privileged, sheltered life in Connecticut while Sam lived a perilous hellish life in Southeast Asia. They have nothing in common. Sam is tempted by the many available women but haunted by the one just out of reach. Ellen has plans to become a concert pianist and not the sexual conquest of a college freshman. 

Is there one path that will unite these two lonely people?
