From Back Cover:

It's summertime and the livin' is hell. Daria throws off the kid-gloves for a star-making performance in her first ever feature length film! Daria finds herself forced into "volunteering" at the OK To Cry Corral, a summer camp for the overly sensitive and those who'd like to be. Quinn submits to tutoring in hopes of getting into the party school of her choice, while Jane is holed up at an artist's colony trying to get in touch with her muse. Then there's the heat rash, the mosquitoes, the runny ice cream... is it fall yet?

My Comments:

Daria - an intelligent and witty spin-off of Beavis and Butthead - came into being at just the right time for me, when I was a sophomore in high school. It takes a fun and poignant look at high school life and pokes fun at the cliques, the jocks, the cheerleaders, and everything in-between. Its lead character, Daria Morgendorffer, is a smart, creative girl who observes and makes fun of the parade of morons around her, while struggling through the typical challenges of teen-dom - crushes, romantic relationships, friendships, academics and more. I only hope that, one day, we'll get the full series on DVD instead of just the two "movies" and the bonus episodes they include.
