Joel is a suburban teenager in the wealthy northern Chicago suburbs with the family house and Porsche at his disposal when his parents leave on vacation. Through his scheming friends, he finds himself entertaining the very sexy Lana. After meeting Joel's enthusiastic friends, Lana spots a business opportunity. She suggests filling a business need by bringing in some of her colleagues. Although not convinced this is a good idea, Joel agrees when he manages to submerge the Porsche in Lake Michigan and needs a quick infusion of cash.
