At 16, Dedee Truitt (Christina Ricci) knows a lot about life... maybe too much. She runs away from her troubled Louisiana home to live with her half-brother Bill (Martin Donovan) and turns his quiet existence upsidedown. Bill is a dedicated and caring English teacher in a small Indiana town who happens to be gay. He has been left independently wealthy after his lover died and is trying to resurrect his life with a new boyfriend, Matt (Ivan Sergei). Lucia (Lisa Kudrow), Bill's sexually-repressed best friend and late lover's sister, distrusts the newcomer and tries to protect Bill. Her suspicions are confirmed when Dedee, being drawn to Matt's good looks and easy going manner, lures Bill's boyfriend into abandoning his gay lifestyle to be with her. This unusual love triangle is further complicated when Dedee reveals she is pregnant and Matt is the father. She then persuades Matt to steal $10,000 of Bill's money and to hide out with her in Los Angeles. For insurance, Dedee also steals the ashes of Bill's deceased lover and threatens to dump them if Bill comes looking for Matt and Dedee. Keywords:
