London 1958. It's the early era of rock and roll, where teenagers in particular are experiencing a sense of freedom of expression not afforded teenagers of the war and immediate post-war periods. Nineteen year old Colin is trying to find his place in life. He truly believes in equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed, sex or sexual orientation. He has nothing against money in and of itself, but doesn't like what one generally has to do to obtain money, or what money does to people. He loves Crepe Suzette. She in turn loves him, but is focusing on her career as an aspiring fashion designer instead of him. That focus is highlighted by her actions following a fashion show for her generally conservative boss, Henley of Mayfair.
