A sensitive but confused teenager feels pressure on him from all directions and turns to drugs, which causes problems for him in school and at home.
User Reviews: This TV film pushed the envelope concerning teenage drug usage in the era. Even though the dialogue is a bit corny at times, Benson, Gazzara and Brennan still give powerful performances. Still worth viewing! Caution! If you watch it on Amazon Prime, be prepared for a very poor video transfer.
