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?

One day you fall for this boy.

And he touches you with his fingers.

And he burns holes in your skin with his mouth.

But it hurts when you look at him.

And it hurts when you don't.

And it feels like someone's cut you open

with a jagged piece of glass.

The Tracey Fragments

Sonny was a dog...

God! God! God!

It's all about the pussy and the ass today...

F*ck you, F*ck you, F*ck you, F*ck you.

I love you, Tracey Berkowitz.

We can take a plane. Take a plane.

-You know...

-We can take a plane.

..It really isn't my fault..

I had a car but I fucking smashed it.

...I came from a hole, you know.

Raped. Murdered. Is that what you want?

Do we really have to do this now?

They can't ever know Promise me...

No one can...

Why would I lie? Huh? Why would I lie?

Promise me... Promise me...

I am so happy......

Why would I lie?

Why would I lie?

I know what you're doing,

you stupid ugly bitch dyke f*ck ass!

I kind of like to ride a different bus every night

depending on my mood.

Like, if I'm depressed,

I-I enjoy being around other depressed people.

And happy people

they friggin' depress me, you know.

Look. The other day, something happened.

I came to certain realizations.

I can't tell you what.

Or you'll end up like me.

On this bus. Looking for someone.


Sonny, please!




My name is Tracey Berkowitz. Fifteen.

Just a normal girl who hates herself.

No, no, no...

Settle down. Just settle down.

Tracey, where exactly did you find the toque?

I just found it.

There's something you're not telling us.

Tracey is there anything you're not telling us?

I'm a very passionate person.

I was born to love.

-Mis-Mister Berkowitz-

-No, where is he!?! Where is he!?!

-Settle down.

-Where's my son!?!

I wish I just had one of those whistles.

Because he'd be here right now.

On the side of the road, barking.

It's not my fault.

Because if you knew them

-- if you really knew them --

you would know that

I'm not the one that needs a friggin' shrink.

Look. Look at what you've done to Mommy?

She's destroyed.

-We've got a fucking crisis here.

-Everything's a fucking crisis.

Shut up!

Why don't you join us?

I don't know what you...

We looked for Sonny for two days.

He never came back.


I gotta find him. I gotta find him.

No body can stop me.

Have you seen my brother Sonny?

Ha, ha, ha, ha...

Okay sweetie, see you later.

Okay? See you. Okay?

Sonny? Sonny! Sonny.

Stop. Please, please.

Please stop, it's an emergency, please.

Sonny! Sonny! Sonny! Sonny...!

Excuse me, I'm looking for my brother.


Sonny? He's nine. Blue coat.

I-I just saw him - I just saw him outside.

Mark Johnson is my friend. He's a very nice guy.

I know what people say about Mark Johnson,

but he's a regular guy.

And he likes you.

It doesn't have to be a heavy trip.

He just wants to be your friend.

Take you out for dinner,

maybe some drinks, something......

F*ck off.

F*ck off!


Well, look who it is: it's the tit-less wonder.


Awww, sorry about that.


That floor must be really hard.

That is tragic.

See you later. Have a nice day.

Now class, does anyone know

what Its tits look like?

Anybody? Here, allow me. Ready?

Voila. Isn't that...? That's...

This is the story of the girl with no tits.

Went to my school. No tits. Big dumb moon face.

Hey. Here you go.

It. It. It. It...

Shut the f*ck up.

What's going on?

What is that piece of paper? Bring it to me!

Throw it out.

Before I left home,

I had this idea.
