Focusing on the lives of three high school buddies, this picturesque drama is a study of the American Dream gone wrong. Davey, Danny and Mary are friends from high school. Davey was a basketball star and Mary, his girlfriend. But two years later the two find that what held them together in school has gradually faded. There's real trouble, however, when outcast Danny returns to Utah with his new wife, a spit-fire whose presence leads to disaster.
