This humorous film attempts to explain the nihilistic attitudes and terminal ennui of the X-generation. It focuses upon the lives, relationships and opinions of a group of college age kids living in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Toad is a young anachronism, taking drugs and looking like a flower child. He picks up the hitchhiking Duncan, a philosophical introvert. Together they stay in the home of Jenny, Toad's sister. Jenny writes and sings dreadful songs about the environment at the local coffee-house. She lives with Calvin, a pre-law student who works at the coffee house. Squeeze also works there. Her lover is Hank, an eternally blocked artist. Their actions are reflected and explained by Julian, a dee-jay at the college radio station.
