Owen, a young reporter for a Los Angeles-based music magazine, goes back to his Florida hometown to interview Sherry, a local rock singer. Sherry and her band are becoming increasingly popular, largely because of a song she wrote about being sexually assaulted as a girl; this song has become a hit on college radio. Owen's reasons for returning to his hometown are more than professional, however: he and Sherry were close friends in childhood. Through flashbacks, the movie recalls Owen's memory of a critical moment in that past.

At her mother’s insistence, she reluctantly makes a plan to sing "You'll Never Walk Alone.” Edna is even less thrilled about her mother’s choice of wardrobe, calling it uncomfortable.
