DVD - 2018

After escaping New Jersey, the quintessentially punk Wren, a sparkplug in fishnets who lives dangerously downtown, moves to the city with the mission of becoming famous. When not pasting up flyers for herself or hanging at the Peppermint Lounge, she is getting involved with Paul, the nicest guy to ever live in a van next to the highway, and Eric, an aloof rocker.
