On what seemed to be another uneventful, long, hot summer day, a mysterious 13-year-old, Lily Jane Bobbit (Tania Raymond), stepped off the 5 o'clock bus and set off a sequence of events that changed the small town forever. Two fest friends, Billy Bob and Preacher, have never met anyone quite like Lily Jane and are determined to win her over and help her to achieve her dream of going to Hollywood to become a star. The two battle for her attention and as the summer months wear on, it is clear they are on a collision course with one another that could not only destroy their friendship, but also take the tiny town with them. Meanwhile, a smooth-talkingshow promoter (tom Arnold) comes to town and tries to con the locals out of their life savings. The boys, Lily Jane and her best friend, Sinter Rosalba, take it up on themselves to track down and capture the crooked Mr. Quince and turn him in to the local authorities. In the process of trying to outwit the con man and return the town's money and dignity, the kids are also reminded of the meaning of true friendship.
