In a rural 1940s southern town, a socially awkward high school girl is taken advantage of by the boys, because it's the only way she knows to relate to boys. But one, Buster, falls in love with her. The other boys, however, still consider her their convenient "squeeze", with tragic results.
It was 1948. There was a girl like Billie in every school. All the boys knew her... But Buster loved her and no one understood.
