Monsoon St., '77 tells the story of a day in the life of a young tomboy, Tina, who finds escapism in the rural desert of Arizona in 1977. To compensate for her unhappy surroundings, Tina lives in a rich imaginative world. She finds beauty in the natural landscape and comforts herself by summoning familiar figures from popular culture. These fantasies supply the happiness that is otherwise so lacking in her everyday life. Her distracted mother continually rebuffs Tina until the late evening, which forces her to recognize the ultimate inadequacy of her fantasy life.
