Movie Summary

Director:
Abe Sylvia
Released:
2011
Rating:
R
Danielle (Juno Temple of THE THREE MUSKETEERS) is an audacious and promiscuous Oklahoma high school student in the late 1980s. Her teachers don't approve of her attitude, and her mother (Milla Jovovich of RESIDENT EVIL) is about to marry a Mormon who Danielle detests. Amidst the turmoil of her troubles, she is paired with shy, gay classmate Clarke (Jeremy Dozier of TV's ICARLY) for a family planning project. Their unexpected friendship prompts them to run away to Fresno in search of Danielle's birth father, with their bag of flour "baby Joan" in tow. The road trip leads Danielle and Clarke on a funny, heartfelt journey full of glorious 80's tunes.
