All poor JD wants to do during his weekend military furlough is get laid; unfortunately for him, it isn't as easy as it sounds. This raw but funny comedy follows his efforts. The story was filmed on a low budget in black and white on location in Long Island. JD is only 19 and still has a lot to learn about love-making and women. Lots of people try to help him, including Kevin his brother and his best pal Gordon, who has just become engaged. Unfortunately, things just don't go right. First JD tries to see his girl friend, but she is ticked off because he didn't call before coming over. He then tries to get lucky with 11 other girls and each time something goes wrong and he ends up as frustrated as ever.
