17 year-old Lisa Cohen (Anna Paquin) is a student at a New York City high school, who is extremely concerned that she inadvertently played a part in a fatal traffic accident. While she subsequently tries to set things right, she becomes increasingly frustrated that every step she takes to amend what has happened is met with opposition.
The fallout from this unsettling situation implodes on her dragging her downwards as she lashes out at her family, friends and teachers as her ideals collides with the realities and compromises of the adult world.
