Larry, Teresa and Elliot have it all planned out.  After they graduate from high school, they are setting out for California.  They haven't told anyone and don't plan to.  The three have been best friends for years and years and can't imagine life without the three of them together.  And life in this town is just not what any of them want.  Elliot is the popular one but he is being overshadowed by his friends.  Larry has come to the realization that he is gay and his friends try to protect him from the narrow minded townies.  And Teresa knows that the two boys will only ever like her as a sister even though she may want more.  But graduation is approaching and they are packing their bags.
