Though Jenny is practically engaged to arrogant Yalie Richard Thompson (David Underwood), she cannot deny her interest in the thoughtful, good-looking boy from the wrong side of town. Jack and Jenny's zany but well-meaning friends devise a clever scheme to bring the two teenagers together. After Jack's father Cecil (Hoyt Axton) tragically dies, Jack and Jenny are inseparable, despite cryptic warnings from both Jack's mother, Mrs. Duncan (Maggie Blye) and Jenny's father, Mr. Peterson (Christopher Connelly), that they should wisely stay away from one another. Desperate to be together, Jack and Jenny decide to elope, with Jenny running away from home in the dead of night.
The ecstatic newlyweds promptly move into a cheap rooming house, Jack spending his days diligently working while Jenny ineptly tends house. When Jenny turns up pregnant a few months later, the young, starry-eyed couple is elated, but a fateful doctor's appointment changes their joy. Jenny receives the inconceivable and shocking news that she must terminate the baby she is carrying immediately.
It seems years ago, Jenny's father Alex had an affair with Jack's mother Babs and it resulted in the hush-hush birth of twins. Jenny has inadvertently married … her brother! Devastated and without telling Jack, Jenny terrifyingly flees the rooming house and soon arranges for an abortion with a shady surgeon. With time quickly running out, a recently clued-in Jack must race to find Jenny before she makes an enormous mistake.
