Written by and starring 14-year-old Celeste Davis, this groundbreaking feature offers an inside glimpse of how it truly feels to be a teen i...更多>
We're all here because we did some stupid things. We expressed ourselves with drugs, alcohol, self-mutilation, sex and with suicide. And our lives, our minds, our selves are gone because of our bad decisions. We took the road less traveled. And we died. And we never will recover from that.
[looks at Saint James] Silver Strand: But that's part of the whole plan. Johnny: All he ever does is talk about sex and whether or not he should keep his weed plant in direct sunlight or if he should keep it shadded. I mean shaded. He actually said shadded. Sam: Hey Jess, This is my girl, Silver. Jessie: Like the metal? Cool. Silver Strand: Do you ever feel stupid for leaving? Atticis: Absolutely. I'm a stupid man. How many other fifteen year old boys get drunk and fall off mountains? Saint James: I'll be your supplier for eternity. Silver Strand: You're letting me do drugs? Saint James: Oh, yes. In fact, we insist on it. Celeste: Silver, this is what you do. You put out this certain image, this certain attitude, and you wonder why people don't like you? You wonder why your friends dump you? It's because you're so selfish and caught up in you, and your life and your problems. Yeah, I am embarrassed of you. You're careless. You act stupid. And you always have to be the center of attention. Silver Strand: I know I'm pathetic, and I hate myself for it. And if I was someone else, I wouldn't like me either. Gameshow Host: The question is: do I find it acceptable for fourteen year old kids to kill themselves, and throw away the lives I so generously gave them? Silver Strand: [voice over] You would think that God would be there. That she would care, have compassion, give you that reassuring smile and tell you that it would all be better. That's what brought me to my suicide. But instead of comfort when I arrived, I was punished. Punished to the immortality of this place. [title card appears] Teacher: [snapping at a student] Hey! None of that! Marsha: No, it's okay. I want them to be honest about what they're feeling. A lot of teen suicides have to do with kids bottling up their emotions and having nobody to talk to.
