Boredom and bad decisions are a part of life in far-off places like BFE, a small, isolated town on the edge of nowhere, Idaho. Young and old struggle to live free or die trying. This includes Grampa, who has a terminal illness but won't go down without a fight. His grandson Ian divides his time between teaching the old man how to live, and trying to catch the eye of the troubled and angelic Ellie. The only problem is Ellie's popular boyfriend Zack, who stands in the way.
Awash in golden dusk light and hazy smoke-filled parties, BFE ruminates on the claustrophobic beauty and intense relationships in a desolate town in the rural expanses of Idaho.
