For three teenage boys spending a lonely summer on the beach in New England, the Summer of '42 was the summer they learned about life and became men. Herman Raucher (Gary Grimes), summering on Nantucket Island with his pals Oscy (Jerry Houser) and Benji (Oliver Conant), meets Dorothy (Jennifer O'Neill), a newlywed in her 20s whose husband is off at war. As his friends awkwardly attempt to woo girls their own age, Herman slowly befriends the older woman and finds himself becoming increasingly in love with her, until a sudden tragedy changes their lives forever.
