Divided into three segments, Part 1, "The Beaver Kid," documents an encounter video maker Trent Harris had in 1979, in the alien state of Utah, with a young man who adores and impersonates Olivia Newton-John. Part 2, "The Beaver Kid 2," is a fantastic restaging, two years later, of this poignant and bizarre tale. Finally Part 3, "The Orkly Kid," is the story of a querulous clown prince, who leaves his small-minded Iowa town behind.
