Poor young Grant has his first hickey and it is the size of Texas. Hoping to hide it from his parents, he quickly learns that will be impossible since the whole town of Fort Smith, NWT, already knows and won’t let him live it down. Based on Richard Van Camp’s story, this hilarious tale, enacted by Fort Smith actors, will leave you in stitches and might just bring you back to the memory of your first love bite.
