SYNOPSIS:
Artists' model Yvonne falls in love with young Andre...when he finds out she's had
more than a business association with every man she's posed for, Andre is crushed
and breaks off their relationship. He soon finds himself seeing Yvonne again, but
now he's engaged to another woman. The biggest faults in this one are an
extrememly frustrating plot and a lack of chemistry between the stars.
