Juliet Du Pres, the daughter of a wealthy Chouteau Forest family, sneaks out of her house to go to a party with her forbidden boyfriend, Dex, a low-rent mechanic’s son. She wears only heels and a blue velvet dress in sub-zero Missouri weather. At the party are drugs, booze, and rivals for Juliet’s dazzling blonde beauty. On the drive home, Juliet has a fight with her boyfriend, runs into the woods near her house and disappears in the snow. Was Juliet kidnapped? Murdered? Or is she hiding out with a high school stud?
