Two bohemians from the Big Apple head for Maine to go camping and get into trouble when they encounter a camping couple and their lovely young daughter. One of the beatniks is a would-be writer of true-confession stories. Unfortunately, he cannot be bothered to write down any of his stories. He is the one who involves himself with the girl. Fearing that he may have impregnated her, he and his buddy stage a mock drowning so that they can escape all responsibility for their actions.
