Movie Info

The search for a certain black Barbie doll sets two star-crossed, misfit lovers on a crime spree that leads them down the road to tragedy. Seth and Marcy met in a small upstate New York town while shoplifting in the same store. Seth is a small-potatoes thief who wants to escape his senile father. Though she comes from a wealthy home, Marcy suffers from a severe case of Tourette's Syndrome and sometimes experiences violent and/or obsessive compulsive outbursts that lead her to steal. While in the store, she gets fixated on having an African American Barbie styling head. Together, they decide to go to Toronto in hopes of finding the doll. But trouble comes when Marcy proves unable to control her compulsion and the two decide to rob a pharmacy.more
