Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy DeanĚ

In a five-and-dime store in small town West Texas, the "Disciples of James Dean" gather for their 20th reunion. Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when James Dean filmed "Giant" two decades ago in nearby Marfa. One of them, an extra in the film, has a child who 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 off a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter disappointments.
