In a small Texas town during 1976, it is the last day of school at Robert E. Lee High School. This film follows a group of teens on that special day and does a good job of reflecting the mood of that era. A new freshman class coming in is being hazed, and the seniors are raising hell. In the midst of the humiliations, football star Pink (Jason London) saves entering freshman Mitch (Wiley Wiggins) from a thrashing by seniors. The day passes, and the students end up at a wild keg party in the woods.

The couple rob banks and have even become cop killers during their flight as the law and two loan sharks follow in pursuit. TV coverage makes the couple popular in this violent, but somewhat fun, film.

Superb computer-animation (filmed as live action then digitally transferred to computers) is used to project philosophical musings of the film's young hero (Wiley Wiggins) who can't seem to figure out if he is awake, dreaming, or even dead. Fascinating.
