Its easy to see why I never heard of this thing before now. It's atrocious. The innocent drunk boy gets taken advantage of at a hootnanny by his boss at the old mill and just cannot live another day with all that shame. Also, since he can't get it up for his girlfriend, its possible said innocent boy maybe enjoyed that hayride afterall. Robbie Benson is adorable and tries to be convincing, but I'm not buying it. What crap.
