In a small town in West Texas, the "Disciples of James Dean" gather for their twentieth reunion. Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when Dean filmed Giant two decades ago in nearby Marfa. One of them, an extra in the film, has a child whom she says was conceived with Dean during the shoot. The ladies' congenial reminiscences mingle with flashbacks to their youth; then the arrival of a stunning-but-familiar stranger sets of a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter disappointments.
“Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
