An army deserter happens upon a farm that houses a man and his four daughters. Immediately offering him shelter, the old man has no idea what trouble he is inviting by introducing this young buck to four girls who have too little exposure to the male element. One by one the sisters seduce him until he finally finds the one that captures his heart.
