He rescues Judy from a teacher and students who tease and torment her, and showing her his video tape of revenge kick-starts their friendship, which is soon in an overdrive of romance, sex, and pleasure. Jimmy is in and out of mental institutions, and before long, he and Judy are on the run. Cocaine, guns, and a commune of other misfits figure in their flight. How far can their love take them? It's all on video. Written by

Jimmy, we discussed this, you can't tape our sessions, it's not allowed. Does your defiance make you feel more powerful? Filming people makes you feel like you're in control of the situation, doesn't it? Maybe?

Near the end of the credits is the following disclaimer: "No animals were harmed in the filming of this movie. The Raccoon was already dead. We found it that way. Seriously." See more »
When I saw this title I thought, Woo hoo another crappy film to watch and then to comment on, but what I didn't know was the reality of this movie was so real that it made me think really hard of what this world is like for kids who are not blessed to have parents and friend's to care for them.
After watching this movie I found my self in a daze, sorta like a trance (something I always find myself in when watching these kind of movies') and I knew that all the things that Jimmy and Judy went through were things that could and DO happen to teenagers ever day. And to put things into perspective and to tell a beautiful story of two VERY misunderstood kids and their problems with everyday life. I now know that life can be hell and that without someone to talk about it to you, you can really go crazy.
People need to look outside of their own home and see what happened's when kids (mostly teenagers) can do with one gun a camera and a misunderstood life.
