This comedy is the directorial debut of 23-year-old Steve Balderson -- who also scripted, produced, edited, and designed the costumes. With eight students competing for the coveted honor of senior-class prom queen at Oak Hill High, the feud between Terra (Amy Kelly) and Cherry (Brooke Balderson) escalates amid a variety of other extracurricular activities -- from setting off fire alarms and calling in bomb threats to hit-and-run accidents, gunplay, and kidnapping the school's principal. Music score by Johnette Napolitano (founder of Concrete Blonde). Shown in the Market section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
