Twenty years ago, six of the cool kids from Cathedral Girls' and Boys' High Schools - Kath Burke, Tom Dolan, Judy Eagan, Barry Field, Peg Morrissey, and Andy Walsh - let Cheryl Cass, the class pariah, into their private circle for a short time, ending on a disastrous June day still infamous in Colchester, New York with a mixture of LSD and a half-baked attempt at a Black Mass still known as the Black Rock Park incident, whose perpetrators were never caught. After that day, Cheryl dropped out of high school and left town, and the six old friends drifted apart.

This spring, however, Cheryl Cass has come back to her old hometown to refurbish what few good memories she has from a very hard life now that she's dying of cancer. Her six former classmates were the only people in her life who'd ever shown her even counterfeit affection, and now she wants to talk over old times.

Unfortunately, most of them aren't at all pleased to see her....
