  • One Sunday, twenty-two year old virgin Eileen Tyler decides to take the train from her home in Albany to visit her older brother, airline pilot Adam Tyler, in New York City. The surprise visit is in part to commiserate about the break-up with her fiancé, Russ Wilson, but also to ask Adam for some advice about the issue which led to her and Russ' break-up: if it's all right to have premarital sex. Adam tells her no - that men marry "decent" women - all the while not telling Eileen that he is a chronic womanizer who has sex regularly. Eileen's visit has actually placed a crimp in his plans to spend a sex-filled day with his primary girlfriend, Mona Harris. Being on call may also factor into how Adam spends his day with or without Mona. Regardless of Adam's advice, Eileen decides that she's going to attempt to seduce a stranger while in New York leading to her first sexual experience. Despite the rocky start they have, she thinks that person is Mike Mitchell, a Philadelphia based music critic who was in New York for the day to meet up with a woman, who ultimately stood him up. As Eileen and Mike's relationship goes through its ups and downs during the day, Eileen's decision to seduce Mike may hit a road bump when Russ unexpectedly comes into New York to reconcile with Eileen. Russ comes to his own wrong conclusions about who Mike is in Eileen's life. Russ, Eileen and Mike ultimately have to decide what is important in their respective dating lives.
