14-year-old June is ostracized from her family and mourning the loss of her uncle when she suddenly finds an unexpected friend and embarks on a remarkable journey of discovery and compassion. This sophisticated, poignant coming-of-age story set under the shadow of the AIDS crisis within the art scene of the 1980s could be aptly brought to the screen by a director like Gus Van Sant or Cameron Crowe.
