Oscar Grubman (Stanford) is a true renaissance man. He is sensitive and compassionate, speaks fluent French, is conversant in the classics, has a passion for Voltaire, and can tell all he needs to know about a woman with one look at her hands -- and he is 15 years old.

As he returns home from boarding school to his parents' New York City apartment for Thanksgiving, Oscar has one thing on his mind: older women. When a beautiful 40-something friend of the family (Neuwirth) actually takes notice of his infatuation, the comedic complications start piling up.
