To Find A Man is a 1972 romantic comedy-drama that revolves around the life of a teenage girl, Jennifer (Pamela Sue Martin), who is looking for a man to call her own. An independent and spirited girl, Jennifer's life is shaped by her mother's constant attempts to marry her off to a wealthy man. Jennifer is a high school student in a small town in California. She has always been interested in boys and dating but has never found anyone who meets her high standards. She dreams of finding a prince charming who will sweep her off her feet.

Her mother, Mary (Susan Oliver), is a single mother who runs a bed and breakfast in the town. Mary is always pushing Jennifer to marry a successful man so that she can be taken care of for the rest of her life. Jennifer's best friend, Sue (Melody Thomas Scott), is also looking for a man but is having little luck.

Things change when Jennifer meets Mark (Darren O'Connor) at a dance in her school. Mark is the new boy in town, he is good-looking and mysterious, and Jennifer is immediately drawn to him. They start dating, but Jennifer is apprehensive because she does not know anything about Mark's past.

As Jennifer starts to fall in love with Mark, her mother tries to put an end to their relationship. She disapproves of him because he doesn't fit her criteria for a wealthy potential husband. Mary wants to set Jennifer up with a rich businessman in town, whose son is also interested in Jennifer.

Jennifer tries to convince her mom that Mark is the man for her, but her mother won't listen. In an attempt to show her mother that Mark is a good man, Jennifer visits his house and meets his parents. Mark's dad is a strict and overbearing man who disapproves of his son's relationship with Jennifer. She learns that Mark's parents are separated, and his father is a recovering alcoholic.

Despite all the obstacles, Jennifer and Mark continue to see each other. Their relationship takes a turn when Mark reveals his true identity, which jeopardizes their relationship. Jennifer is left heartbroken and struggles to come to terms with Mark's past.
