Actress-turned-filmmaker Asia Argento (QUEEN MARGOT, THE STENDHAL SYNDROME, xXx) made her directorial debut with this semi-autobiographical portrait of a young actress (Argento) who, despite her popularity and success, experiences despair and degradation at the hands of an abusive industry. Her harrowing journey toward redemption leads her on a sordid spree of excess across America and Europe while trying to recapture her innocence and find true love. (Note adapted from Film Movement.)
