The film, set in 1966 New Jersey, is about a romance between an upper-middle-class Jewish girl named Jill Rosen, who is bound for Sarah Lawrence College, and a blue-collar Italian boy nicknamed the Sheik, who aspires to follow in Frank Sinatra’s footsteps. The movie follows their high school experiences during their romance: Jill’s success in high school acting productions, Jill’s rebuffing of Sheik’s sexual advances, Sheik’s one-night stand with a sexually active friend of Jill’s and a subsequent suicide attempt by that friend.

Eventually, Sheik is expelled from school, and after an attempted robbery and subsequent pursuit by local police, Sheik goes to Miami, Florida, while Jill subsequently leaves for her first year at Sarah Lawrence in the fall of 1967. At one point in her first year, Jill visits Sheik in Florida during spring break, and although she sees clearly how little he has going for him (he has found work in a nightclub washing dishes and, on weekends, lipsynching to Frank Sinatra recordings), she has sex with him. In the moments before they undress, their conversation turns to his odd nickname, which he had not explained to Jill when they dated in high school. “Sheik” is a *brand of condoms*, he explains–“like Trojans.”
