Synopsis

Judith is a 16 year old girl with many secrets, some of which are still unknown to her. However on a trip to upstate New York she meets Jimmy, an older boy who is a regular at the bus depot, and is soon transfixed by his imaginative tales of the anonymous travelers passing by. Not only does he stir in her first feelings of love, but also deeper feelings of mistrust and betrayal that erupt into an act of violence.
