Lonely, teenage trailer-trash nerd Lester has taken all the bullying he can take. Even girls, and his mother's boyfriend have made him suffer needlessly. The one girl that's nice to him is Judy, the sheriff's daughter. But when he sees her kissing a boy, he feels betrayed. That night, he has a fight with his mother's boyfriend, which leaves Lester dead, hanging from a tree. A year later, teens are being murdered around town, and Judy discovers that Lester's restless spirt has possessed a scarecrow and is making his tormentors pay...and she could be next!
