Content Note: We talk a lot about our experiences growing up in an area with a lot of conservative Christians and LDS church members. We also briefly touch on real gang violence and mention the death of one of Julia's high school classmates. We don't dwell on that for long, but it is mentioned.

Julia's sister Kat joins us to talk about a weird Christian movie that she watched in school and later begged her mom to buy for her: The Buttercream Gang. There's so much to discuss about this movie that we had to break the show into two parts. Here's a clip from the movie, containing the song that plays two full times in the movie and then again over the end credits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wgKORgQUmw

This clip contains one of the montages we discuss in depth, including the part where teens pull small children off a see-saw and start using it themselves. Here's Kat's hazy summary:

My hazy blur at the moment is some kind of white boy soul redemption. Maybe there were bikes and a tree? And autumn was in there too. Pretty sure there were fallen leaves in the woods. My school had some weird program in which we watched the movie and then could buy it. I have no idea why that was a program for a lot of reasons. I was definitely peddled the white Christian savior message. Only a few years later I moved on to watching Welcome To the Dollhouse on repeat. Big leap 

Basically Kat had forgotten the entire plot…Anyway, one of the weird things about this one is it is supposed to be set in Illinois, but it was filmed in Utah, which looks nothing like Illinois. However, Utah is also where Troll 2 was filmed! Which led us to have some questions about the possible supernatural underpinnings of this … odd … small town. If you haven't watched Troll 2, we recommend it. Here's our episode about it: https://www.spreaker.com/episode/50218156. We will catch you next time, with the thrilling conclusion to our Buttercream Gang discussion!
