A troubled teen wildly overreacts to the empty threats of an elderly neighbor and runs away from home. No mention is ever made of her parents contacting the local authorities or making any attempt to locate their missing child so we are left to assume she was unwanted to begin with. She encounters some catastrophic weather and loses conciousness for an unknown period of time when she hits her head during the storm. Upon waking, she discovers that she has unknowkingly committed a homicide during her blackout.
She is pursued by the grieving relative of the deceased and receives a tip from a local charlatan about a man that can help her get out of town quickly. Walking the dizzying streets of this unfamiliar city, she is serenaded by some suckers singing about a world made of doughnut holes, attacked in the woods and ultimately duped into joining a gang of hoodlums who it turns out are victims of organ trafficking and psychological warfare. They too are directed towards this local ring leader who might know how to procure them some replacement organs.
After several encounters with dangerous wildlife and an opium trip that lasts for an undetermined amount of time, the teen and her gang locate the residence of the man they seek. The plan to flee the city undetected nearly fails when he is exposed as an imposter and turns out to be a completely incompetent imbecile that tries to distract the teen from his deception by suggesting she ruin a perfectly good pair of shoes by bashing the heels together and destroying the red glitter.
Then she wakes up and it turns out it was all a dream. Or a bad trip. The truth is perfectly unclear.
Things are not always what they seem. Are they Dorothy?
