May Lynn is a pretty girl who dreams of becoming a Hollywood star until her dead body is dredged up from the Sabine River. Sue Ellen, May Lynn s strong-willed teenage friend, and her pals Terry and Jinx set out to dig up May Lynn s body, burn it to ash, and take those ashes to Hollywood. If May Lynn can t become a star, then at least her remains can be spread in the land of her dreams. All they need is some money and a raft; while the raft is easily available, stealing the money requires some gumption, but they manage it. Then they head downriver together with Sue Ellen s agoraphobic mother: a motley crew on a mission. Pursued by Uncle Gene and Constable Sy, who are after the money, and Skunk, an all-too-real legendary killer who s after their lives, they begin to understand that when you set out to make the dreams of a friend your own, your worst nightmares may come along for the ride.
