Syracuse University's 1960 Homecoming: The big game, dreamscape posters, voodoo-curse legends, and hyper-inebriation all swirl together for an unforgettable weekend. For Bud Elstein it's even more. It's the beginning of his love affair with red-headed, sharp-witted and curvacious Carlee Stecher. The affair, however, is not to last.

Bud's closest friend, Dave Nelligan, with whom he's worked in the local numbers and policy rackets, is murdered. Seeking vengeance and justice, Bud devises a plan to entice the suspected killer-and rival for Carlee's love-into a midnight duel in a deserted park.
