It is fall, 1963 and Real Johnson is about to enter Yale University. Follow his hilarious journey through the freshman trials of admissions interviews, SATs, a new college wardrobe, roommates and true love. All the adventures of what many look back on as the times of our lives. In the extreme changes of the time period, Real’s only concern is leaving his girlfriend in Florida and how he’s going to explain his name to his soon to be new friends. Would it be enough to say that no one referred to their package in the forties when he was born, as their Johnson? Real’s journey, his education and maturation is a story that will appeal to everyone about to go to college, currently in college, has graduated from college, or should have gone to college. In other words just about everybody.
