Synopsis

In Falls City, Nebraska, Brandon Teena was a newcomer with a future who had the small rural community enchanted. Women adored him and almost everyone who met this charismatic stranger was drawn to his charming innocence. But Falls City's hottest date and truest friend had one secret: he wasn't the person people thought he was. Back home in Lincoln just seventy-five miles away, Brandon Teena was a different person caught up in a personal crisis that had haunted his entire life. Like many young poeple, he made costly mistakes and when he inadvertantly trespassed between his new love Lana and her reckless friend John, the mystery unraveled into violence. In a single, short life Brandon Teena was at once a dashing lover and a trapped outsider, both an impoverished nobody and a flamboyant dreamer, a daring thief and the tragic victim of an unjust crime.
