Set in backwater Middletown, USA Stuck tells the tale of two twenty-three-year-olds, Lula and Margaritah, best friends since they were five years old. They work at a dead-end job at a local video store during the day and hang out in the car at night, wishing they could get out of Middletown. Stifled by their environment, the joy and excitement that the girls once found in their friendship has sadly waned. Margaritah falls in love with an Argentine wheeler-dealer whose politics are as mysterious as his business agenda. Lula hits the bars and ends up with the man of no one's dreams. Both affairs end in despair, and each girl grows increasingly determined to escape the drudgery of their lives. But the price will be higher than either can imagine. Try as they might, they may just be Stuck - for good.
