Dean (Matthew Leitch), a lower-class British teen, is kicked out of his family home. Desperate to make a new start in high society, he secures work with the very upper-crust Lady Gryffoyn (Diana Quick). But Dean is soon back on the street, relocating to Paris under the identity of Gryffoyn's son. He finds friendship with hustler Benjamin (Peter Youngblood Hills) and his lover, David (George Asprey). But, with all the deception and romantic confusion, Dean's new life proves to be a struggle.
