Edith and Patti-Jo attempt to come to terms with their post-high school friendship in a 1980s world of Harlequin romances, Hallmark sentiment, and marching band uniformed burglars. Patti-Jo marks time in her whirlwind life by a sequence of Senior pictures of her boyfriends until one tragic car accident, while Edith descends into the loneliness of mail order catalogs and knitted sweaters. The story that unfolds between the two girls moves like an X-ray of female friendship, and the tightly knotted bones of many things latent.
