It's the summer of '63 and Jeffrey Willis (Matt Dillon) has decided to escape his poor Brooklyn family for the summer by accepting a job as a cabana boy at the El Flamingo Beach Club on Long Island. Working around the glitz and glamour, Jeffrey realises that these 'beautiful people' are a sharp contrast to his own family. Life in the fast lane seems much more appealing than what he's got at home.

One of the club's flashiest members becomes Jeffrey's mentor, teaching him how to win big at cards and introducing Jeffrey to his beautiful niece. He is bedazzled by this lavish lifestyle, but can't forget the life and family he left behind. At the end of summer, which life will he choose?
