"A group of freaky punks are astonished when a strange girl approaches them as they stagger out of the club. But before long they succumb to Rachel’s innocent charm and decide to take her into the fold. It’s 1996 and Rachel has just turned fifteen... From an archaic Mormon community, she has rushed headlong into the city to escape being forced into marriage by her father. Pregnant, she’s convinced that a forbidden rock song she listened to secretly in the cellar is the cause. She has come to Las Vegas to track down a mysterious red Mustang and the musician who sang Hanging on the Telephone on the tape. As she moves angelically about this brave new world, Rachel stumbles across a surprising secret." (Berlin Film Festival) Hide
