SummaryArchie, a seventeen-year-old media geek, announces that his final school video project will be filming his own suicide. As teachers sound the alarm, call in shrinks, and threaten expulsion, the students are both repelled by and attracted to Archie as he captures his own postmodern 'Catcher in the Rye.' His video diary of the circus surrounding his announcement exposes the truths of life, which include death, sex, violence, drugs, and the hypocrisy of the modern media, which assaults all teens.
