Summary
Adam is a college student who works part-time as a security guard at the university's art museum. One evening, Adam spies student, Evelyn, preparing to deface a statue - she is offended that a fig leaf has been used to "censor" a statue of a nude male. Adam and Evelyn begin dating, and she begins remaking Adam into the sort of boyfriend she'd prefer. Under her influence, Adam loses weight, gets contact lenses, changes his hairstyle, starts dressing better, and assumes a cooler and more confident personality. Adam's pal Philip notices the changes in his friend and isn't happy.
