Shining a light on addiction and the white middle class drug scene, this film centers on a forlorn teenager abandoned in New York City who mistakes the welcoming embrace of a Lower East Side drug dealer for the love of family. The plot follows the sales and distribution of narcotics through teen social circles until they come to a violent end. Benson's fearlessly honest insider view busts the myth of casual drug use as his character, Gene, morphs from troubled child to novice dealer to accidental addict. The ending is a jolt audiences won't forget.
