Unlikely friends Markey and Pete just want to escape their tiny, mostly white, not-so-secretly racist town in rural Pennsylvania. For sensitive Markey, that means dreams of college and big cities, while rebellious Pete wants to be the next Kurt Cobain. When Markey finds an escape route without Pete, their friendship is shaken to its core. A decade later, the two find themselves sifting through the crumbled foundations of their shared history and revisiting the event which bound them together for life.
