Film adaptation of the 1993 novel of the same name follows an embattled teen's wild experiences with life and love.

Sixteen-year old Nick Twisp is an awkward, libidinous young man, living in Oakland with a loser of a mother depending on his estranged father for child support. A camping trip brings our sexually-frustrated protagonist in contact with the enticing Sheeni, ultimately sending him on a ridiculous and rebellious journey to score with the woman of his dreams.
