On her 15th birthday, Rachel, a young Mormon girl from a fundamentalist Utah community, discovers a forbidden cassette tape with rock music on it. Having never heard anything like it, she has a miraculous experience and three months later, claims to have had an immaculate conception from listening to the music. Her parents arrange a marriage, but Rachel runs away to the closest city, Las Vegas, to search for the man who sings on the tape, thinking he has something to do with her mysterious pregnancy.
“There are similar feelings that I share with Rachel that I wanted to explore. It’s the feeling Dorothy has in THE WIZARD OF OZ when she sings ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’. It seems like a youthful plight to think there is someone or some place magical beyond the rainbow that will make things better or solve a problem.” (Rebecca Thomas)
