Can three girls survive their graduation night stuck on a Ferris wheel? Set in 1959, the Dream Wheel breaks down with Miss, Berry, and Colleen at the very top. The girls are forced into states of sheer terror and self-reflection, as they try to make the most of their last night of high school. Facing such frightening prospects as the real world and the abyss below them, these best friends stretch the fabric of their friendship, eventually becoming closer than ever.
