This film presents the problem of a teenager caught in the crossfire of adult opinions and youthful enthusiasms. Howard, just out of high school, was slated for college and a career as a chemist. But he first wanted to make a summer long, foot-loose tour of Canada with a school pal. This suggestion, however, is strongly resisted by his socially conforming parents. Howard's resultant confusion, to which the film gives shape, illustrates some of the inner conflicts that arise in teenagers when every fresh impulse is rationalized out of existence.
