SYNOPSIS: From the award-winning director of HUNGRY HEARTS comes the story about Puzzle, a long-time veteran of the streets, who is frantically looking for his missing girlfriend, Suzie. He soon discovers that Suzie is not the only street kid who has disappeared recently, and wild rumours abound. Some people are saying that Riktor, a vicious gang leader, is killing the kids for her own sadistic pleasure, while others are claiming that a cannibalistic creature is responsible. Puzzle turns to his friend Cass, a long-time hooker, for help. However Max, her pimp, doesn’t want her to get involved. Convinced that Riktor is behind Suzie’s disappearance, Puzzle seeks revenge by humiliating her in front of her gang. Riktor, shamed but still dangerous, exacts her revenge and Puzzle pays the price. Cass, a witness to the events, decides that she has to do something. She seeks help and counsel from Doc, a physician who provides free medical assistance to the homeless. But, the mystery of the street kids’ disappearance is a lot deeper than Cass suspects.
