Storyline

Shan Wallace, the new girl at an upscale high school, forms an immediate bond with the other outcast in her class, Chun Hei, an outspoken Korean with an arsenal of witticisms at her disposal. Shan would never admit it, but she wants desperately to fit in, and Chun Hei used to be the leader of the popular group until her mother sent her away to boarding school for being disobedient. But defiance isn't Chun's only vice and she quickly sucks Shan into the seductive lifestyle of the rich and plastic. As Shan falls victim to her vanity, her friendship with Chun comes unglued. Will Shan choose superficial (lip) gloss over substance and integrity? This short film will resonate in its portrayal of teenage life in 'Lost' Angeles. Written by Director
