Life takes a strange turn when a group of outsiders come to a small town, the famed site of James Dean's fatal car crash. The town's only business, a diner owned by Max (John Mahoney), is overrun by this glamorous group while the diner's short order cook (Ian Gomez) and waitress (Virginia Madsen) get caught up into this new, exciting world. Unknown to the rest, a magazine reporter (Linda Emond) arrives in town to uncover a dark past that Max has kept hidden for over forty years.
