This family drama focuses on the destructive behavior of cutting as practiced by teenagers intent on self-harm. Dawn Cottrell is a quiet and withdrawn teenager who can't seem to please anyone, especially her anger-filled, critical mother. So she deals with all of her unexpressed emotions through a ritual of self-injury that involves either cutting or burning her skin. Dawn gets at least some pleasure in knowing that her ritual of secret cutting is at least one thing in her life under her total control, even if her behavior has devastating consequences for herself as well as other family members.
