Incredibly, this romantic melodrama was directed by the same man who brought The Night of the Living Dead to the screen. The story concerns a recently discharged young army veteran (Ray Laine), who doesn't want a regular job but wants to drift around and enjoy things for a while. He finds a girlfriend with a good job (Judith Streiner) who is willing to support him while he pretends to be writing a novel, and they have a good time for a while. Eventually she tries to get him to take a regular job. He does, but quickly gives it up. When she discovers that she is pregnant, she goes through a lot of soul-searching about it without telling him. At first she plans to have an abortion but then decides to return to her hometown and marry a childhood sweetheart who is comfortable with her having a baby. Landing on his feet, the army veteran decides to take up his father's offer of a job and a place to live after all. His father consoles him with the aphorism that when other "flavors" of life pall, "there's always vanilla."
