Landing a prestigous summer internship on a prize winning newspaper seems ideal for four young people.
For Chris, who is glad to be taken seriously as a writer and to get away from his blue-collar father's expectations.
For Vicki, it's a chance to grow up, shine in the big time, and maybe even get a scholarship so she won't end up stuck in a dead-end job like her mother.
For Elizabeth, it means time to distance herself from the suffocating relationship she has wih her husband.
For Faith it's a way to forget the past and try to be just a normal teenager.
Weeks of work and play wear on their relationships. What do they expect of each other? What do they expect of themselves?
