Rumor has it is a quirky romantic comedy about a young woman named Sarah Huttinger, who finds out from her grandmother that her family inspired the making of the classic book and film "The Graduate." Torn and confused from this news, Sarah is determined to find out if her father is indeed her biological father or if it is the famous Beau Burroughs.
Sarah and her fiancÚ head off to help her family celebrate her sister's wedding. Once there, the family secret is revealed to her. If finding out her grandmother was the inspiration to create Mrs Robinson is not bad enough, to find out her father may not be her biological father has become complete torture for Sarah. She already believes she had nothing in common with her family as it is; now Sarah leaves her fiancÚ and family to meet Beau Burroughs to find out the truth once and for all, adding a little more to the already classic story.
