Brad Pitt (Troy, Ocean's Twelve) and Juliette Lewis (Starsky And Hutch, Natural Born Killers) star in this shocking drama about teenagers and the death penalty.
Lewis plays 15-year-old Amanda Sue Bradey, a girl who has already endured a lifetime of cruelty and neglect. Abused by her stepfather, abandoned by her mother and with one failed marriage behind her, she falls prey to seductive hustler Billy Canton (Pitt).
Billy soon introduces Amanda to the world of sex, drugs and prostitution. She then meets a man who shows her the only love and compassion she's ever known. But when he is forced to break off their friendship because of her age, Billy convinces Amanda to take bloody revenge.
High on drugs and booze, the two go on a murderous rampage. Amanda is arrested and because of the brutality of the crime, she's tried as an adult. If Amanda is found guilty of murder, she'll receive the death penalty.
