Born in the small town of Damascus, Virginia, Bonnie has always lived in contrast to her simple roots. She’s a heathen, despite her family’s strong Christian values, and she never stays in one town or city long enough to feel tied down. Always alone, never with a companion, she travels the southern United States performing songs about far away places to audiences who are eager for a distraction.
After a show on a Friday night, in the back of a smoke-filled bar in Arkansas, Bonnie meets a girl named Adeline. There is a modest beauty to Adeline’s honey-blonde hair and auburn eyes. Her eyelids are powdered in light-blue eyeshadow, and she wears a pair of faded light-wash jeans that hug her low on her hips. Bonnie thinks she is the most beautiful girl she has ever seen. They spend the rest of the night drinking whiskey, talking about their dreams for the future and sharing their memories from the past. Bonnie can feel something stir inside her but she is unable to determine if it's lust or love.
In the morning, Adeline leaves. After visiting her family home for the summer, she is returning to California to finish her senior year of college.
Always alone, never with a companion, Bonnie travels on.
