A teenage couple of disparate backgrounds experience their first romance in this made-for-TV movie. California girl Robin Gibson (Valerie Bertinelli) comes from a family with liberal ideas; newly transplanted midwesterner Derek Clayton (Timothy Hutton) has had a more conservative upbringing and is having some trouble adjusting to life on the freewheeling West Coast, where he's joined his sister after the death of their parents. The film was shot as "A Girl and a Boy: The First Time," which gets to the heart of the teens' dilemma while making it sound like sleazy exploitation. But writer Dan Polier Jr. takes a gentle, sensitive approach and and veteran TV director Steven Hilliard Stern never cheapens the material.
