Writer-director Esther Bell spins this semi-autobiographical drama about a young punk learning to come to terms with her gay father. Set in 1988, South Carolinian teen Teri (Nika Feldman) plans a road trip to the Big Apple to sell her zine "Skid Marks," bringing her skate punk boyfriend Kevin (Arik Roper) and his buddy Skank (Preston Miller) along for the ride. Once in the city, their car gets swiped, forcing them to track down Teri's biological father Henry (George Crowley) -- who is recovering from both a gay bashing incident and the separation from his longtime lover (Fred Schneider of B-52s fame) who dumped him because of his closeted ways. Believing that her father abandoned her long ago, Teri harbors much resentment toward her dad and is loath to look him up. As the film progresses, she learns that the truth is much more complex. This film was screened at the San Francisco Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
