A teenage girl in a dysfunctional relationship with her rich stepmother but with a fat wallet of credit cards, gets in a fix and falls in with a criminal who says he can sort her. The inevitable descent into sex and drugs is lightly handled, using some highly original cuts and edits. Eventually, the heroine sets out into the desert and the action hints at psychedelia as her lover makes a parallel journey. Eventually --- well, I won't go into that. The end is a little contrived, but the last frame offers ultimate relief. I went all the way with this picaresque picture, rooting for the realistic heroine all the way. Great writing and directing from Angel Flores Torres, one to watch, definitely.
