The film follows one night in the lives of several recently graduated high school students.

The genial Steve prepares to leave for college the next day, and Laurie, his girlfriend, is upset.

Laurie's brother, Curt, the class intellectual, is also slated for college, but he has serious doubts about his future.

Also included here are a hopeless nerd and the eternally cool drag racer, John, who feels pressure to live up to his reputation.

A nostalgic feeling is evoked in seeing the teenagers cruising in their hot rods, eating at Mel's Diner, and listening to Wolfman Jack spin the latest hits.

From character to character we watch as they relish in their last day of summer.
