The year is 1977. Three teenagers are on an Indiana back road, heading home away from the highway, away from prying eyes and traffic cops. One behind the driver's wheel, two in the back seat sampling the merchandise that could get them all jailed. And then, as the car careens along beneath a black sky lit only by a million stars, they see it. The boys demand they stop the car. The girl driving refuses, telling herself they're imagining it, terrified they're not. What happens to them next could be real or the stuff of dreams, but it will never be forgotten.
