Single mother Nora (Brooke Adams), a truck-stop waitress, lives with her two daughters in a small, New Mexico, desert town. The daughters are near-opposites: Trudi (Ione Skye) is fast becoming a rebellious town tramp while Shade (Fairuza Balk) lives in a fantasy world watching Mexican movies and wishing she had a father. Against this bleak backdrop, Director Allison Anders deftly brings out the lives and conflicts of the three women.
