Don't Forget the Knife

Liza, Drea, and Lia travel through their stomping grounds, in a Brooklyn community, spending their day having fun and causing trouble. Their day leads to escalating events that force Lia to reconsider her actions and the way she is. Decisions have consequences they say, and this leads to the need for closer introspection; presented as a meditation on violence, friendship, free will, influence, impulsivity, decision making, circumstances, and growing up.
