Storyline

"Angie" (Annie Q), a damaged girl from a tough urban background, is accepted at a prestigious university in the 80s. When her financial aid is cut, she breaks into the organic chemistry lab and synthesizes the drug Ecstasy. She becomes one of the west coast's largest distributors of "X," cutting deals on campus and in posh nightclubs. Her dual life as "model minority" coed and profit-driven drug dealer is further complicated by her desire to help "Bree," a young girl from the ghetto who reminds Angie of her own dark past. She lives the high life until her recklessness instigates a sudden tragedy from which she may not recover. Will she learns to give and receive the love necessary to transcend her past and step into the light?

A chilling, honest story
25 October 2018 | by suzanneweberSee all my reviews

I have seen and heard many stories that have portrayed the drug industry in various ways but none so compelling as this. Wang's work here not only will open your eyes to MDMA but will make you laugh, cry and pray. A true must see and a re-see. Excellent.
