Precocious, effeminate, gender-confused, fragile, articulate and unforgettable 16-year-old Smiley Hanlon, observes the world with a dry detachment. A wise sense of what is right, wrong, and just plain mean; a voice, albeit, self-indulgent that says more about gender-based biasness and violence than anyone.
Sixteen-year-old Smiley Hanlon is a young woman tethered to a young man’s body. In the 1950’s Appalachia coal fields of Solitude, Virginia, Smiley is placed in the “Mentally Retarded Class” because he is effeminate and wears a blouse and saddle shoes to school.
