The setting is Hell's Kitchen, the time the 90s, the lead characters, some confused, angst-ridden teens.
There's not much plot here, nor much character development. Just a brief walk on the wild side of big city life.
Focusing on a sensually ambivalent girl and her off and on lovers and acquaintances, there are very good performances and atmospheric details to savor.
Competently directed, with a rich rock track, these short vignettes explore a feminine teen scene rarely depicted in films. Make no mistake, though, this journey is definitely not for everyone, and only those who have the energy, stamina and interest in examining tough urban life from a young feminine perspective, will be rewarded.
