Four friends graduate from high-school and find themselves looking at an uncertain future in small-town America.

Looked down on by the students Dave faces his greatest challenge yet, one that will test his endurance and spirit to the limit. NOMINATED FOR 5 OSCARS - AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON DVD.
