Description

Tara's got it made - good grades, cool parent's, a weekend job, and a boyfriend, Ron. Then there's her friend Janet who lives on the street when she can't get on with her parents. Along with other street kids, Janet panhandles for money and spends nights at an abandonned building called Hell's Hotel. Ron wants the world to know that it's adults who force the kids on to the streets - parents, teachers, police - and he asks Tara to help him publish his opinions in his alternative newspaper, The Rage. As Ron confronts authority, Tara begins to question his motives. Then, quite suddenly, many of the pieces of her perfect life start to crumble, including her stable, happy home. Her grades slip, her friends desert her and her mother leaves town. Where will Tara turn for help.
