Caroline Wexler is horrified when her father moves them from the city to a small town after her mother's death. Thinking herself to sophisticated for the kids at her new school, she starts an affair with a teacher, Mr. Anderson.

When Caroline discovers that she has competition for Mr. Anderson's affection from another girl at school and that Thurston is falling in love with her, she must truly act like the mature woman she thinks she is.
