Additional Info

Here is a sympathetic look at college students caught in a universal dilemma. Edie, a junior from a broken home, meets Doug in the cafeteria to tell him she is pregnant and wants to get married. A senior intent on graduating, he maintains that they are not ready for marriage and offers to help pay for an abortion. Edie refuses, they argue, Doug walks out, and she contorts in pain. A cafeteria worker attempts to comfort Edie by expounding on the joys of motherhood, but this only confuses the younger woman. Doug returns and the three strike a tableau, each in a solitary world.
