Set in the suburban neighbourhood of "Burnfield" in Austin, Texas,
five young adults are in the daily habit of hanging out
by a garbage dumpster on the corner of a local convenience store,
occasionally taunting the foreign clerk who works there.
The film's main character, Jeff (Giovanni Ribisi),
is an aimless soul unsure of his future & he's dating Sooze,
who has expressed the desire to leave Burnfield and become an artist.
Jeff's best friends are Buff & Tim, a troubled young honorably
discharged military man who drinks too much and has a knack
for shooting his mouth off. Sooze's friend Bee Bee is
a recovering alcoholic who is invited to join the group.
One evening, an old friend of theirs, Pony, now a rock star,
shows up looking to reconnect with them.
Most of the group is glad to see him, although
some of them are bitter and jealous of his recent success.
Through actions and conversations they all contemplate
what they want to do with the rest of their lives
in this Generation X release.
