His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give any sort of solace. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion, and sexual identity collide and careen towards an ending that's both haunting and helpful."
