When local rich kid Hubie Pyatt (Barry Tubb) steals and wrecks Binx Davy's beloved motor scooter, Binx's older sister, Billie Jean (Helen Slater), demands the $608 it costs to fix it. Binx shoots Mr. Pyatt (Richard Bradford) by accident and he and Billie Jean flee town accompanied by Billie Jean's girlfriends, Ophelia (Martha Gehman) and Putter (Yeardley Smith). They become fugitives and when they pick up a very willing hostage, Lloyd (Keith Gordon), they become criminals. Billie Jean becomes a legend in her own time, a symbol of freedom to teenagers everywhere. Includes all-new commentary! Newly remastered.
