1972 and the teenagers of Long Island spend their time drinking, smoking and taking drugs. The girls all experiment with sex, get pregnant, have abortions or adoptions, such is life. The boys are all older men, most suffering from the effects of military service in Vietnam. These are bleak times. It is small-town community life, astutely described; a working class Long Island not often portrayed. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
