Mike Parker does what's expected of him. He helps out with his uncle's gas station after graduation even though he feels he should be going off to war. And while he wishes the prettiest girl in town would notice him, she never does, so he keeps a respectful distance.
But all that changes for Mike late one night when an old pick-up pulls into the gas station, riding on a flat. And the person who gets out just isn't who she appears to be. One kiss later, and Mike Parker will never be the same.
