Once a year, prom mania grips Racine, Wisconsin, when prom-goers from seven high schools converge on one citywide prom to make red carpet entrances bombarded by the flash of cameras and approving screams from filled bleachers. This humorous documentary brings to life an American rite of passage taken to the extreme. With five decades of archival footage and interviews with prom-goers of all ages, the film glories in the excess of an otherwise simple Midwestern city?s quirky, Dionysian side.
