Schoolgirl Anita Minter lives in the trailer with Rooney, the lover of her mother, who knows where to disappear. Almost every night Anita reluctantly surrenders to Rooney, however, the girl is illegible in sexual relations. Once at school, the entire class is given the task of making friends by correspondence. Anita writes off to Howard, a young man serving a sentence for a murder in a colony somewhere in California . Howard writes to her that he is madly in love with weapons, and Anita begins to wake up interest in firearms. She begs her stepfather to teach her to shoot. Once, when he once again pesters her, Anita kills him with a pistol, and the corpse hides behind the trailer. On the same day, Howard was released from prison, since Anita had begged local priest Hank, a little out of this world, to bail him. Hank gave Howard a job, married a couple, but they can’t live a normal life.
Anita soon reveals her terrible secret and the two of them are going to get rid of the corpse of Anita's stepfather. Anita is noticed by her classmates and pestering her. Howard inadvertently kills one, after which he has to kill the second. After shooting a policeman the next day and beating another one, the couple started to run on the car, going to Fresno to find Anita's mother. Having never found her, Anita and Howard enter the private house in the evening, where they enjoy the “other life” all night, which has become the happiest of their lives. But the next morning the police take the house by storm, in a shootout with which Howard dies.
