SYNOPSIS

SNEAK PREVIEW

This is a story about the break-up of the only love affair that you can’t live without, the love between children and parents. The location is suburbian Los Angeles. The home of James Dean from "Rebel Without a Cause" and "Desperate Housewives". The classic doll's houses that frame our strict ideas of happiness and cripple those who can't develop within.

While fighting to make this painful story reveal itself to the camera, I gradually realize that I have to reveal my own wounds. That the only way I can make the wounded teenagers face my camera is by facing an agonizing pain within my own soul. A loss of parental love that I have kept abay by hiding behind the very camera, that is supposed to tell a story of teenagers being hijacked to teenage prisons in Mormon Utah in the name of love.
