The year is 1959. The location: a small southern town. Against this backdrop, five bikers and a 16-year-old girl leave the town with a memory the residents will never forget. Kathryn Bigelow’s low-budget directorial debut, co-directed with Monty Montgomery, and starring Willem Dafoe in his first big-screen role.
