Jenny wants Tom, as a stranger, to pose nude for her art project which combines photography with painting.

Jenny, an artist, and Tom, a photographer, meet as strangers on a quiet ocean beach. She asks him to pose nude for her art project which combines photography with painting. He agrees to consider her proposal and then moves on to his usual Friday night bar to meet with friends. These merry Bohemians go around with dance, flirtations, drinks, and laughter, and then the stranger Linda arrives with a shocking surprise. A “normal” Friday night – it is not to be, nor are the next two weeks. These six characters interact with both verbal and physical passion. Sometimes more talk than action as they seek creative places. After the sudden deaths of both Linda and Tom’s grandmother, Tom agrees along with friends and others to pose nude for Jenny’s project. Later, at Jenny's art show with their images on display, a celebration erupts with toasts and nods for more life adventures for the members of this love gang.
