Dana McGarren keeps running in to Jared, a new kid in school who was brought up in France. Dana is already going out with a great guy, Paul, and it's her best friend Lynn who wants to get Jared to notice her. Despite the complications, Dana is still curious about Jared and though she doesn't want to lose Paul's affection, she wants to add Jared among her friends. It is hard for Dana to keep all parties happy. She appreciates the opportunities missed by being connected with one boy to the exclusion of others. In a dramatic ending, we see how sensitive all parties involved turn out.
