The setting is small and dusty Anarene, Texas in the early fifties. Duane and Jacy are going steady, but she wants more. Sonny dumps his girlfriend and gets involved with his coach's wife, before falling for Jacy. Each scene gets more intimate, with kids necking in the movie house and in their cars, skinny-dipping and checking into motels as they discover their sexuality. Sonny, Jacy, and Duane start their own lives as Anarene dies slowly around them.
