The basic plot of the movie has to do with child marriage, particularly between older men and severely underage girls.
Eleven-and-a-half-year-old Jennie (played by twelve-year-old Shirley Mills and her stand-in of an unspecified age, Bernice Stobaugh) appears nude for approximately four minutes while skinny dipping as her boyfriend Freddie stands watch. Her buttocks and breasts are occasionally visible throughout the scene. In this scene, she also discusses with Freddie why she won't allow him to go skinny dipping with her anymore, contending that he might start getting "bad ideas" from seeing her naked.
While struggling with her husband in a domestic dispute, Mrs. Colton flashes some cleavage at the camera.
Jake Bolby's "courtship" with little Jennie Colton includes a scene in which, much to her distress, he kisses her full on the lips.
On his wedding night near the end, Jake Bolby instructs Jennie to remove her clothes and get into his bed as he goes out to close up his house for the evening.
At the end, Freddie proposes that once they're a little older, he and Jennie can get married, and she kisses him romantically in celebration.
