One night in late August of 1963, in the prairie town of Millard we meet 14 year old Jeanne McCate: her sixteen year old sister is pregnant; her Dad has been drinking; her Mom has been swearing; and Jeanne is hanging on for dear life in her own hilarious and heartfelt way... and all before the big dance! Caught between her own family crisis, community mores and the limits of family loyalty, Jeanne turns to pop songs, 45's and her imagination to, as her Mother says "pull herself together."
