Storyline

Seventeen year old James is convinced that he is a psychopath, having killed animals since the age of nine and now seeking a human victim. At school he meets angry, foul-mouthed Alyssa, whom he marks as a potential victim and dates uneasily, sharing with her his disdain of his cheery single father Phil. After attending a party given by her mother Gwen and lustful step-father Tony Alyssa persuades James to steal Phil's car and run away with her. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Alyssa: Sometime, everything is suddenly really simple. It's like everything shifts in a moment. And you step out of your body, out of your life. You step out and you see where you are really clearly. You see yourself. And you think... Fuck. This. Shit.

Amazing start fon an amazing serie
28 March 2020 | by crippamatteo-37072See all my reviews

The opening episode of a series that I will end up loving. I immediately appreciated that we are told the thoughts of the various characters. These were introduced well by showing us their views, their psyche and their problems. Very beautifull.
