In a barren Texas backwater, old friends and members of a James Dean fan club reunite 20 years after his death. Their perpetual mourning and the underlying obsessive desperation of their lives creates a harrowing psychotic spectacle of unfulfilled desires that ultimately leads to hysterical self-deception.The women swap their real emotional poverty for dreams. Dreams that make monsters.
