Summary

In an dusty, under-populated California resort town, Pinky Rose, a nave and impressionable Southern waif begins her life as a nursing home attendant. There, Pinky finds her role model in fellow nurse Thoroughly Modern Millie Lammoreaux, a misguided would-be sophisticate and hopeless devotee of Cosmopolitan and Woman's Day magazines. When Millie accepts Pinky into her home at the Purple Sage singles complex, Pinky's hero-worship evolves into something far stranger and more sinister than either could have anticipated.
