This story follows the lives of two teenagers from the Midwest, MAX and MAGGIE, the town misfits. Physically and socially they are total opposites. Maggie is a gifted high school runner from a dysfunctional family (mother is suicidal and father is a drunk) and Max is a shy boy with a clubfoot who hails from one of the town's most respected families (father is the pastor of the local church). In spite of their differences and perhaps because of them, the two outcasts grow to become best friends, and all through school they help each other over the rough spots and lend a shoulder to cry on when needed. Eventually the relationship between Max and Maggie develops into love, and as far as Max and Maggie are concerned life couldn't get any better. Maggie receives a track scholarship to college and Max has the girl of his dreams. But things have a way of changing. Before Maggie goes away to school, she is summoned to Max's father's office for a talk. It is during this talk with, PASTOR GIBBS, that deep dark secrets are learned and Max and Maggie's lives are turned upside down.
