Tuned for the younger generation, the plot has too much an old-fashioned feel to carry it off. Dee suffers the stigma of being an illegitimate child, even though her mother told her that her father died when she was young. However, everyone else in this small closed-minded town knows
otherwise. Saxon, who has come into town with his luckless father, falls in love with Dee. With her mother on the brink of insanity and his father trying for one last grasp at success, the pair have an uphill fight to grow into normal adults.
