Suddenly amidst the chaos and confusion there is a knock at the door: a rugged 17-year-old delinquent has been sent to live with them - his last chance at rehabilitation. His youthful nature ignites a passion within her, which offers her a way out of a life bound by convention and into the world beyond.
