In a small town dime store in West Texas, the "Disciples of James Dean" reunite for the twentieth anniversary of the actor's death. Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when Dean filmed Giant two decades ago in nearby Marfa, Texas. One of them, an extra in the film, has a child whom she says was conceived with Dean during the shoot. The ladies' congenial reminiscences mingle with flash backs to their youth; then the arrival of a mysterious but familiar stranger sets off a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter truths.

Start Date: May 29 2017 - 5:00pm
