Anna is a 15-year-old girl who has had it with her life at home. So she "borrows" her stepmom's credit card and runs away to Los Angeles, where her half-sister takes her in. But LA isn't quite the glamorous escape Anna had imagined. As Anna spends her days on TV and movie sets, she engrosses herself in a project researching the murderous Manson girls and she begins to notice the parallels between herself and the lost girls of LA, and of America, past and present.
