Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Two rebellious young lovers set out on a crime spree in hopes of finding a better life together in this tender, modern-day fairy tale from director Nick Lyon. Sarah (Emma Bing) is a fifteen year-old girl from a small papermill town. Bored by the fact that nothing ever happens in her town and hungry for the love that she can't find at home, Sarah falls in love with Spike - an ambitious, drug addicted rocker who longs to join a band and break big. In order to support themselves along the way, Sarah and Spike collaborate on a series of small-time con jobs. When Spike has a successful audition, he clings to the dream that things can only get better for the hapless couple. But just as it begins to seem as if Spike's dreams are about to become a reality, fate deals the aspiring rock star and his girlfriend a devastating blow. Their future looking especially grim, man-child Spike and vulnerable Sarah must rely on their unconditional love for one another if they hope to overcome the odds and break the vicious cycle of despair.
