Enter a world of nihilism and self destruction. Enter a world of rape, incest, and trauma. Enter a world of violence, drugs, and prostitution. Enter an Innocent World.
Ami believes in nothing, hopes for nothing, and turns tricks because it's something to do. Her journey from the pit of despair to the precarious edge of something else captures the part of being seventeen that never makes it into words.
