15-year-old Tracey Berkowitz is naked under a shower curtain at the back of a bus, looking for her little brother Sonny, who thinks he's a dog. Tracey's journey leads us into the dark underbelly of the city, into the emotional cesspool of her home, through the brutality of her high school, the clinical cat and mouse games with her shrink and her soaring fantasies of Billy Zero - her boyfriend and rock n roll saviour.

One only for artistic eccentrics perhaps? Just hard work trying to piece together the story while your senses are bombarded with input ... the ongoing fragmented imagery just doesn't work .. just too tiring! In short, not a good way to tell a story. One to avoid.

ok i get it - being 15 is confusing, emotions seem to swamp us, blah etc blah. but for the love of decent low budget films - stop trying to be clever with the editing! this kind of layering technique is not edgy or alternate - it's just a bit desperate for attention. i was forewarned it would be a difficult watch, but the story was tragically interesting. it has taken me several attempts (well 3) and i actually no longer care why she's on the bus in a shower curtain. don't care and wouldn't recommend it.

This could have been a very good movie because it stars Ellen Page. Unfortunately, the way it is presented makes it very confusing. For most of the movie so far (I sit here and type this while the movie is playing in another room, that tells you how much I'm enjoying it), the movie has been shown in "fragments" of four or five or even more different angles of the current scene all on your screen at once. I don't know where to look! The storyline appears to be about this 15 year old girl, who is seeing a shrink and her little brother is missing and she rides the buses at night.

I think you need to be on an acid trip to watch or get this movie. Low bidject film where the producer obviously thought he was being "creative"with his headache inducing filming techniques that just never let up! dont waste your money on this rubbish.
