Taken from the life story of Leslie Jordan. A Tennessee country boy realizes he's gay and keeps getting in trouble with the local bad boys. He hears Atlanta is the new place to be, tosses his country overalls and shows up at the disco in silver platform shoes and a polyester Saturday Night Fever get up. He meets Tripper (Mark Pelligrino) and the trouble and adventures don't stop. Leslie's partner in crime is Miss Make Do, a colorful debutante of a mess, rebelling against her wealthy Southern family and running with the druggies and disco drunks. Amazing cast including the late John Ritter as the preacher trying to pray the homosexual temptations out of young Leslie. Many other related recognizable cameos.
