The story of a young man's first foray into independent living. Eighteen year old Robert Probish takes refuge from his family only to stumble aimlessly through his first attempts at adulthood. His overly solicitous landlord Mr. Goldfarb almost turns him anti-Semitic; his hang-over friends from high school use his tenement pad for love-ins; a neighbor's boyfriend threatens to emasculate him; another neighbor, Stark, a gloomy artist from Nebraska, fascinates and antagonizes him.
