In the late sixties, integration looms over provincial Miami as Herb Rizer returns home for an ailing dad and secures a position at the university. Trouble starts when he dates Beth Shockett, a professor of English, and unwittingly falls in love with a divorcee who has horrendous psychological hangups. An anti-Semitic vice president at the university intends to topple him and uses moral turpitude as a weapon after stumbling upon his affair with Mrs. Shockett at a motel. His meteoric rise at the university after the death of his father is stymied by a love affair gone haywire and continual harassment from his nemesis VP, nicknamed the Eustis Harpy. This intriguing love story is set during the upheaval of integration and the liberal sexual attitudes that threatened the mossgrown establishment.
