For Wade Corey (Andrew McCarthy), his trip to New York to attend his friend's wedding was to be a pleasant, uneventful experience. But, when his car and all his possessions are destroyed in a fire, he meets Doyle Kennedy (Matt Dillon), an ex-con drifter who suggests that the pair attend a Fourth of July in a small Kansas town where free food and beer will abound. Wade agrees...and this encounter, the girl he meets and the subsequent events change his life forever.
