No stranger to playing a teenager, Ellen Page stars as Tracey Berkowitz in this film directed by Bruce McDonald. The story centers around a 15 year old in search of her lost little brother, and looks to be a shattered vision of how little control one has over life when so young at age. Ahh, that brings back severely painful memories. Time to call my shrink.

"15-year-old Tracey Berkowitz is naked under a tattered 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 savior. Her travels also put her in contact with the seedier inhabitants of the city. Like Lance, her would-be savior who ultimately puts her life in jeopardy. Tracey's stories begin to intertwine truth with lies, hope with despair as we move closer to to the truth of Sonny's disappearance."
