This is a contemporary fable (2000) loosely based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment". Roseanne is outwardly a perfect and popular teen. However, her image is hiding the abuse at her stepfather's hands, and she decides to take revenge. The events that follow are a mix of dark humor and an exploration of modern morality as Roseanne faces not only a fellow suburbanite who knows, but her own conscience as well. The soundtrack includes rock tracks by the likes of Modest Mouse, Frank Black, Meat Puppets, Sound Furnace, Extra Fancy, Magnapop, Joey Santiago and many more.
