To add experience to her Civil Engineer degree, before she begins a full-time job with her brother’s engineering company in Minneapolis, Carolyn Creighton takes a summer job as a flagger on a road construction crew in northern Minnesota. The crew consists of two women and twelve men. The thirteenth man is the granite-hard boss, Luke Stanford. Luke runs a tight ship, and to achieve their heavy work-load in a short time, his policy is absolute decorum between the men and women on the crew. After witnessing the results of too much casualness between the crew members, Carolyn is forced to agree with Luke’s policy, and tries to treat all the men as equals. However, Luke finds it difficult to achieve this decorum when he begins to fall in love with Carolyn.
