A vivid American tale of a desperate, struggling teenager abandoning her small town life.

 

Star, an adolescent girl from a troubled home, runs away with a travelling sales crew who drive across the American Midwest selling subscriptions door to door. Finding her feet in this gang of teenagers, she soon falls into the group's lifestyle of hard-partying nights, law-bending days and young love.

 

'Shot in startlingly intimate fashion, it combines gritty blue-collar realism with moments of extraordinary tenderness and lyricism'
