Peggy Sue Bodell sets off for her 25-year high school reunion in 1985, albeit hesitantly, with her daughter, Beth, who goes along as company. Peggy Sue has just separated from her high school sweetheart, now husband, Charlie, and is wary of attending the reunion because of everyone questioning her about his absence as they have been married since Peggy Sue became pregnant right after graduation. Peggy has dressed like they used to when they were back in high school, unlike everyone else who is dressed in current eighties attire.
