Synopsis:
Based on the horrifying real-life murder of a young California girl, this powerful portrait of deadly, disaffected teens stars Keanu Reeves, Crispin Glover, Ione Skye Leitch, Daniel Roebuck and Dennis Hopper in a tale that is chilling to witness. On the bank of a river lies the naked body of a brutally murdered young girl. At the nearby high school, Samson brags to Matt and his friends about how he killed her. Drunk and stoned, the doubting teens trudge to the river and discover that he isn't lying. And oddly, they decide to protect Samson behind a loyal wall of secrecy. Tormented with guilt, Matt questions their silence...
and suddenly finds himself in a troubling position: should he do what he thinks is right, or should he keep quiet and live with this demon for the rest of his life.
