Snapped examines the lives of a colorful group of young people as they try to connect with each other and stay amused in a sleepy Long Island town. Tara, a social outcast reunites with her high school sweetheart Billy who is on the lam from a low-down gangster. When Tara falls for Shane, a voyeuristic loner, who gets thrills from stealing snapshots from the local photo shop where he works, the characters lives intersect in this Lynchian town where still waters run deep.

Snapped? Photographed? Pushed beyond the breaking point? Insane? You decide.
This film tells the story of three disaffected youths in the Hamptons. One has a dead end job in a coffee shop and is on the run after mistakenly stealing a bag of money from a small time criminal. The second is his sometime-girlfriend, a photographer obsessed with dead things. The third is a young man who works in a photo shop (where he steals interesting photos) while he avoids calls from his brother in an asylum and tries to sell the family home.
As the story develops, the viewer keeps thinking, `This is not going to end well.' How it ends would be telling, but the film is consistently interesting and worth the viewing. By the end one cares about the outcomes, seemingly more than the characters involved.
