A failing high school student named Chevonn seeks to obtain a gun in order to shoot her abusive mother. Her quest is narrated in a fantastical mashup of literary images that are part Lewis Carroll and part queasy reality, revealing issues affecting our children including alienation, discrimination, bullying and the easy availability of firearms. Chevonn's tale strongly suggests how parents need to perceive the hopeless their kids face and how this can make young people lash out with guns or turn them on themselves.
