A young Southern débutante temporarily abandons her posh lifestyle and upcoming, semi-arranged marriage to have a lustful and erotic fling with a rugged drifter who works at a local carnival.
This is Sherilyn Fenn's first starring role, but she hated it. In a 1993 interview, she said she wanted to hide for a year after filming was over. "I was so embarrassed about how it turned out that I went into a cocoon for a year afterwards." It was meant to be her big break, but the film turned into another sexploitation film. "A lot of people said some really bad things about me for doing such a sexy movie. But I decided to do it because I wasn't comfortable with the material. I didn't want to make choices that would always put me in a place that was comfortable and secure. I thought interesting things would happen and I would grow. Interesting things did happen. I cried at the end of all my love scenes."
The lady's got a secret, don't you? I ain't got no secrets. I ain't got nothing. Except a bike, a truck, and post office box in Clearwater, Florida.
At the end of the movie, when April is in Perry's shower, we see her left hand without any jewelry. In a subsequent close-up of the same hand, there's an engagement ring and wedding band.
