Plot & Details
One mistake causes the lives of two women to fold like a line of dominoes in this independent drama. Carrie (Darling Narita) and Michelle (Ali Raymer) are a pair of twenty-something hipsters who, while dumpster-diving for cool trash one day, happen to find a gun. Carrie makes the mistake of taking it home, and one day her roommate Rikki (Jay Diola) flips out after doing too much speed and uses it to commit suicide. Michelle was strongly attracted to Rikki, and when she hears about his death, she snaps, finds the gun, and shoots Diablo (David Carrera), the dealer who had been selling drugs to both Rikki and herself. Panicking, Carrie and Michelle are convinced Diablo's partners will be looking for them, and they high-tail it out of town. A severely disoriented Michelle starts doing massive amounts of speed, and between her erratic behavior and her poor sexual judgements, Carrie is at the end of her patience when she encounters Shawn (Gavin Hignight), a nerdy but likable fellow she meets while the two women are on the lam. When Michelle's behavior lands her in jail, Shawn helps Carrie bail her out, but Carrie isn't so sure that's the right thing to do anymore. Fans of vintage punk rock will want to keep an eye peeled while watching Tweeked; Chris D. of the Flesheaters and D.H. Peligro of the Dead Kennedys both appear in supporting roles.
