The movie tells the story of Samuel Harmon (John Ritter), a successful magazine editor who is about to turn 40 and feels like he has never lived his life to the fullest. He is married to his beautiful wife, Marion (Connie Sellecca), and has a teenage daughter named Jilly (Jennifer Canary). Despite all of his successes, Samuel is feeling unfulfilled and decides to take some time off from his job and family to enjoy a last fling in New York City before he turns 40.

The movie opens with Samuel arriving in New York City and checking into his hotel room. He is immediately taken in by the excitement and energy of the city, as well as the beautiful women he meets. He heads out to explore the city and quickly meets a vivacious young woman named Nicki (Randee Heller). Despite initially brushing her off, Samuel finds himself drawn to Nicki's energy and they spend the day exploring the city together.

As the day goes on, Samuel and Nicki's relationship deepens and they start to develop real feelings for each other. However, Samuel is plagued with guilt and begins to question whether he should be risking his marriage just to have a last fling. Things come to a head when Marion shows up unexpectedly in New York City and discovers that Samuel has been spending time with Nicki.
