Jersey boy Jack is in his early 20's. He he is a product of community college who lives with his parents and younger brother, works as an assistant administrator in the Happy Acres nursing home. He has been going out for seven years with a cute blonde, Susan, enjoying the sex but ducking marriage. One night on an outing with a nursing home colleague to a club in SoHo, Jack meets Samantha, a fetching, dark-haired, long-legged fashion model. Jack falls for her city style immediately and he is lying to Susan, feeling guilty, dressing in a new black suit and making his way across the Hudson to be introduced to fashion shoots, sushi, Sam's bed, and cynical parasites who date models and the high but empty life of the Hamptons.
