Does childhood ever really happen?
It’s 1992 in the barren California suburbs. Young lust and exploding Dr Pepper
fuel a lost weekend for three teenage boys. Hunting thrills in an abandoned prefab
house on the edge of town, they give all the desires and shames of middle school a
chance to come out. But is there something else in the house that wants to join in,
and why is there a flying goat?
