In Grosse Pointe, Michigan, in the middle 1970s, live the five golden Lisbon girls, each of them blond, sweet, and impossibly beautiful. Ranging in age from 13 to 17, they have enchanted a group of neighborhood boys, who watch them through windows with binoculars, collect souvenirs of them, and fixate on them to such a degree that they never outgrow it. Lux, Cecilia, Bonnie, Mary, and Therese are beyond reach because their strict Catholic parents have, in response to the tenor of the times, nearly imprisoned them in their own home. The girls, preserved forever in the perfection they possessed when they were last seen, were waiting to be understood. Instead, they were simply loved. They animate one of the most unusual films ever fashioned out of the fears and the fantasies of adolescent boys.
