The Tracey Fragments

Synopsis: Tracey Berkowitz, 15, a self-described normal girl, loses her 9-year old brother, Sonny. In flashbacks and fragments, we meet her overbearing parents and the sweet, clueless Sonny. We watch Tracey navigate high school, friendless, picked on and teased. She develops a thing for Billy Zero, a new student, imagining he's her boyfriend. We see the day she loses Sonny and we watch her try to find him. In bits and pieces, we see what leads up to her riding in the back of a city bus wrapped in a shower curtain. Coming of age, or just surviving?

I was going to start this metal-core band

with my boyfriend, Billy Zero.

My boyfriend is so gorgeous.

And famous.


Billy Zero isn't exactly famous.

But he's a star to me, okay?

He is like the most gorgeous boy I have ever seen.

Anywhere. In any music video.

In the whole world, okay?

Oh, he wanted to touch me.

He stuck his cock in me and said I love you.

In that exact order.

Now I'm not afraid to die

because, like, birds and bees and bugs?

They all die after they f*ck.

I love you, Tracey Berkowitz.

It. It. It. It. It...

It's the "Girl With No Tits"

Don't worry about it. You're a late developer.

It's natural.

Exhibit A. My father.

He had sex with my mom to make me but, you know,

I-I think he, like, freakin' fell on her or something

because he says that we're both accidents.

Anyway, like I was saying, I trade futures.

Anyone asks you, that's what you tell them.

Don't cry for Daddy.

He was never very good at stocks and bonds.

Daddy missed the boat. Daddy missed the boat.

Daddy missed the boat.

Exhibit B. My mother.

She's too busy to talk to me.

She smokes three packs a day.

And getting her away from the TV

is a surgical procedure.

So Daddy missed the boat, didn't he?

Ha. Ha.

You're the only one laughing.

Exhibit C. Sonny,

who I turned into a dog.

Why is he barking?

If somebody doesn't tell me

why my son is barking, everybody is grounded.

I, uh,

I hypnotized him.

I'm holding you personally responsible.

You know what, that is it.

That's the final piece of evidence that

we need to send you to a psychiatrist.

Are you on drugs?

No, of course not.

What do you mean, of course not?

W-w-what are you saying?

You don't believe me or something?

Tracey, my philosophy is to be brutally honest

with my patients,

even - and especially - my adolescent patients.
