It is 1963, and a young woman becomes pregnant after a one-night stand with a musician at a summer resort. When she confronts him with the news, he, at first, cannot even remember the event. Disturbed by his response and aware that being an unwed mother might ruin her life, she decides she must get an abortion. But things have a strange way of working out sometimes, and she discovers that having the child might work out after all.
