Young window cleaner Ginger is busy sowing his wild oats and enjoying all the benefits of the sexual promiscuity of the late 1960s.

In between working - where he seems to run into many a bored housewife - Ginger busies himself by picking up and sharing birds with his best friend and next-door bedsit neighbour, Dwyer; but he does have a softer side, and finds time to look in on his older sister (pregnant, again) and despicable layabout brother-in-law, Issur.

There's not much else - and certainly little care - to Ginger's life until a chance meeting in a grotty pub with the beautiful, fair-haired Jill. As the spritely young jack-the-lad begins falling in love for the first time his life as he knew it begins to change entirely, but events at a raucous party arranged by Issur have far-reaching consequences.
