At the beginning of his second year at a prestigious Manhattan conservatory for high school students, introverted cellist Jeremy Jones (Robby Benson) lives a regimented life centered on honing his budding musical talent. But that all changes when the shy Jones meets freshman ballerina Susan Rollins (Glynnis O'Connor). Jones manages to build up the nerve to ask her out on a date, and -- in spite of parental pressures -- the two begin an innocent romance that will transform them both.

This is a beautiful movie from an age of innocence long gone. For those who were young in the 1970's it is a reminder of highschool love and loss. A charming movie with a lovely sound track.
