Female-born Teena Brandon adopts his male identity of Brandon Teena and attempts to find himself and love in Nebraska.
The title of the film is taken from a song by The Cure. A cover of the song also plays in the background at one point.

The court summons Candace finds in the trash can (for which Brandon traveled to Lincoln) says "Hunt County." The courthouse building that Brandon walks into to pay the traffic ticket ALSO says "Hunt County." That would mean that Brandon walked into the very same courthouse where the bench warrant was earlier issued, but the sheriff tells Brandon that "this is what the Lincoln authorities faxed us over."
