Synopsis

It's 1953 and 15-year-old Bobbie Lee Hartley and 18-year-old Billy Joe McAllister are in love. But since Bobbie's parents will not allow her to date until she is 16, she and Billy Joe have to content themselves with seeing each other occasionally after church on Sundays and sometimes sneaking off to meet at the Tallahatchie Bridge. But when Billy Joe gets drunk and has an affair with a man, his guilt ruins his relationship with Bobbie Lee and ultimately leads to tragedy.
