Summary
It's 1987 in Bayonne, New Jersey. The bars are full and smoky, and two old friends, Debby and Beth, are out looking for a good time. With their hair teased and clothes tight enough that they looked painted on, you would never suspect one is a single mother and the other is a lonely office worker. But what they don't see is that most of the men that they meet are only looking for one night stands, not a long term relationship
Awards note
