Overview
At Westburg High, you're either a Heater or a nobody. Heather Chandler (Kim Walker), Heather McNamara (Lisanne Falk) and Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty) are the coolest of the cool. Veronica Sawer (Winona Ryder) is also part of the powerful "Heathers" clique and is the best friend of Heather Chandler. She is the reigning crown princess of Westburg and the most ruthless of all the Heathers. Life here is no game...it's a full-scale war for popularity.

Veronica is soon disgusted by the cruel peer politics imposed by the Heathers and looks for a way to escape their petty power plays.

Along comes the mysterious new kid in school, Jason Dean (Christian Slater) who offers Veronica the perfect solution to end the tyranny of the Heathers. Their meeting was destiny, their love was a body count.

Heathers manages to successfully mix deliciously dark comedy with a strong positive message about dealing with teenage traumas. Teen angst has rarely been this funny or poignant.
