Rockaway: the New York neighborhood that marks the boundary between asphalt and beach. City and suburb. And - in this finely crafted drama -- between childhood and adulthood.On the eve of graduation, three high school friends face a step none is readyfor. Kelly is a bright student bound for Oberlin who thinks she must "fool herself into believeing everything will be OK." Merida craves recognition and dreams of stardom: "People ask me if I think I can get by on charm and good looks. What else is there?" Juanita is a virgin with no clue what she wants from life. And all three girls wonder what life will be like without each other.
